The prestigious Boston Marathon is tomorrow April 15th. It always reminds me of this story I put together. I hope it inspires you.

A few years ago I recorded an ultra marathon in Rhode Island however that's where this story begins. The Race director Bob Jackman received an e-mail from a solder Lt. Donald J. Dryer serving our country from a far away place. He asked if he could run the race from there? Absolutely said race director Jackman. This is a tribute to all that serve. Thank you for your service.

The words in this video are from that letter Lt. Donald J. Dryer wrote.

What is the Ultra Marathon?
The Ultra marathon is a long distance race consisting of distances greater than the traditional 26.2 miles of the marathon. While common distances of 50km or 50 miles are most often found, other events like this one, are timed duration events.

What is a Ultra Extreme Marathon?
An Ultra Extreme Marathon is a long distance race greater than the traditional 26.2 in extreme conditions.

I believe this qualifies.

Thank you for watching.
