The top three ultrarunning-related xtranormal videos

Posted: January 24, 2011 in Uncategorized

Why do xtranormal videos rock? Because everything’s delivered dead-pan, when in the real world you would have cracked up halfway through the first sentence. At least when the topic is ultrarunning, that is.

With the recent upload of “Ultra Runner vs Iron Man” (subtitle: “pointless conversation between two freaks”) the field has truly skyrocketed to the next level. But it’s not the only one out there. The top three ultrarunning-related xtranormal videos reveal our ability to assimilate into traditional society, discuss the honorable task that is crewing and show that an ultrarunner can school an ironman triathlete when it comes down to a battle of wits.


3) I am a barefoot runner

A: Even if that is the case, why would you want to run barefoot?

B: Where should I start? You see, mankind has evolved over millions of years…

A: Oh, sweet lord. I wish I had not asked.

2) Crewing the Western States 100

A: “Well Sandy, that really does sound fun. How did your runner do? Did they achieve their goal?”

B: “If their goal was to alienate me and everyone else in their crew, and make fools of us in front of the other runners and crews, then yes, mission accomplished. His goal was to break 24 hours. He went out at a 13 hour pace for the first 20 miles, then fell apart. He barely made a 28 hour time, because he walked most of the last 80 miles. My husband was the runner I crewed. I filed for divorce yesterday.”

1) Ultra Runner vs Iron Man

A: Anyway, is ultrarunning just for fat people who can’t run very far but have a very  high tolerance for boredom?

B: Perhaps you are right about the boredom. I am still listening to you.

B: In ultrarunning, everyone is equal. We do not rely on expensive gadgets and ridiculous age categories like in triathlon.

A: Your sport is ridiculous. In my most recent triathlon, I was ranked the 11th place left-handed male aged 33 to 37-and-a-half who lives in the Thames Valley region. In my next triathlon, I hope to break into the top 10. I am awesome.
