“Any idiot can run a marathon; it takes a special kind of idiot to run an ultramarathon.”
— Alan Cabelly
I read this quote for the first time a few days ago, and it made me chuckle. Maybe I’m late to the party — on the quote and the author — but I had to look up Cabelly. A quick Google search finds the quote everywhere, lots of results for Cabelly’s runs and this link to his bio at Portland State.
