As a runner who has completed a number of marathons but no ultras - at least yet! - I found this book to be extremely informative and helpful. The author covers the entire gambit of technical issues confronting the ultramarathon runner is a manner that is readable and entertaining.

Amaziiiiing! (Too many i's?) :D Well, I've made a decision. I'm going to rewrite Dauntless, at "afterwards all results. A couple chapters were rushed, and I'm not exactly following the path I'd like to. I mean, I am, but... you'll see what I mean. Anyway, great story! I'll always be watching for a book called "Castle Hill," by L & K (or your real name.) :) Well, it's still an awesome story! Long live Castle Hill! -Dauntless's author (I just started to think... would Janred and Terrin be a cute pair? I reread some of your earlier chapters a while back, and was curious about that... hmm...) :)
