30 kms! I ask for an expertise.
Occasionally, I watch on TV a marathon. The Sport journalist who's also a coach for long distance and middle-distance races, told that participants couldn't do it more than 3 times a year for their body.
30 kms are near 2/3 of a marathon, you're ok? How can you constantly run so much? You could participate to the Paris-Versailles race, you could even 2 it twice in the day!
Do you remember a young South African woman, who was running barefooted? Have you thought about it? : )
Have a great 4th of July. Our National Day is in, exactly, 10 days.

racing a marathon takes a lot out of your body. so racing one not more than 3 times a year makes sense.
But everyday running is at a much easier effort so it does not hurt the body as much.

the south african running was Zola Budd...I like my shoes too much ;)

Thanks to remind me the name of Zola Budd. That way I have been able to watch THE fammous video of the race against Mary Decker.
After that, I watched some races with a runner doing the race between an other and who suddenly passes in first position at the last lap to win finally the race.
What technical races !
Have you seen and do you remember a special race, with a maroccan following all the race an ethiopian, or a kenyan (I can't remember), then the maroccan (probably El Guerrouj)passed, he won, and have been whistled on the podium?
