Hermosa 24 Hour Ultramarathon
Last weekend I participated in a 24 hour run on loose dry sand at the beach. We ran as many 3.38 mile loops between 2 piers as we could complete in 24 hours. I managed to do 14...which added up to 47 miles and change. It was the farthest I had ever run barefoot. The winner was Patrick Sweeney who set the world record for greatest distance run on sand in a 24 hour period after running 94.08 miles. It was a fundraiser for the school district, and an after school program to fight childhood obesity, called the 100 Mile club.
