Being very present and focused in the moment is most important for all the runners. The mind cannot comfortably fathom the length of such a profound race nor the energy needed to stay the course for weeks on end. Yet many of these runners have come back here again and again to experience this ultimate challenge of multiday running. Ananda-Lahari is participating in his eleventh 3100 miler. Even when he does not complete the whole 3100 miles he always goes to the end of 52 days with happiness and joy. In this interview he explains how and why he does it, over and over and over again.
