Tag: Comrades Ultra Marathon
Ellie Greenwood had an amazing year in 2012. Not only did she run the London Marathon in 2:43 in April and the Vancouver Marathon in 2:42 a month later, she also took second at the infamous Comrades Marathon in South Africa, and won the Western States 100 for the second year in a row, this time breaking the course record. What a talent!
How many runners out there have run a 2:17 marathon to qualify for the US Olympic Marathon Trials and also run the infamous Comrades Ultra Marathon in South Africa-he took 11th- and the 135 mile Adventure Corps Badwater Ultramarathon across Death Valley-he took third-…. all in the same summer? Michael Wardian also runs marathons dressed up as Spiderman and has set world records while pushing one of his kids in a Baby Jogger. LOVE this guy!
