Transcript from ‘Ultramarathon Man’ podcast
Dean – I was drunk on my 30th birthday and at midnight I said i’m leaving the pub. They said where are you going, the night’s young, let’s have another round of Tequila to celebrate. I said no I’m going to run 30 miles to celebrate instead. I said but I was still going do it and I walked out of the bar. I’ll never forget I didn’t even own running gear but I had on these comfortable silk underwear like silk boxer shorts. So I peeled off my pants, threw them down the alleyway and just started stumbling off into the night.
Heading south there was a town called Half Moon bay which was 30 miles away and that’s where I set my sights. Food is always a major theme in the middle of the night, as as any ultrarunner knows. As we’re getting older, we’re trying to refine our act which is I think it’s good credit to our generation.
