"The Worst Beating of Your Life": Very funny article about extreme marathoning. Competitors have 60 hours to go 100 miles (and that's the good news). Or you can compete in the 60 mile version, dubbed "The Fun Run".

I just finished my first Marathon, and I can say without any hesitation, that these people are lunatics. It is crazy, like i've never heard.
