It’s the 49th mile. I have been running for upwards of 12 hours and have ascended more than 15,000 ft. A once rocky and wooded trail yields to verdant pasture; there is a shepherd who looks up from his flock and with great expression cheers me in a language I will never understand. I smile knowingly and glide through the field at a pace approaching a sprint, all the while completely astounded by everything that is happening inside of this moment. I am so far outside of anything I thought possible. I knew at this exact moment that this is ultra running.
