Throughout the day yesterday, I kept checking Dean's progress as he attempted to break the 24-hour treadmill record. Although I don't know his exact mileage, the website says "he completed a distance equal to the total of five marathons, just one shy of the record."
Watching the spectacle unfold in real time via the internet was pretty amazing.
Also amazing was the barrage of trash-talking about Dean on the ultra listserv. I just don't get the animosity from the ultra community.
