Re: JMT Record Attempt by Michael Popov ??
Well, I'm off to help Michael out. He left this morning 45 minutes behind his 79:45 hour schedule. He only got about 1 1/2 hours of sleep before his 12:00am start, so it's as good as...

Re: Re: JMT speed record attempt

Re: JMT Mega Bonk
Wow, I couldn't help you with the food matter. After a day of running I have a horrible time eating on the go. I also use Perpetuim, jels and snikers for calories. I go for about 40% with...
