Well, these guys are tough. I have done quite a few 150 milers but do find that distance a challenge. Nutrition is a big problem for me. The food needs to get in the blood fast enough to do some good. Many trail available foods don't do that and you run out of energy.
These guys must have solved that problem.
BTW, I ditched my two Brooks because they could not handle lots of rain. This area has lots of rain and the Brooks are a pain in the a*s if it rains all day and the next, and the next.
