The Badwater Ultramarathon just might be the toughest footrace on the planet. It is a non-stop run of 135-miles in length through the hottest environment on the planet. Those who enter are not only fantastic athletes, they also have an uncanny ability to happily endure suffering.
The video below follows one such athlete, Michael Arnstein, as he attempts to run the race for the first time. Michael, who happens to be a fruitarian, shares his approach to nutrition and preparation for a race of this length, which tests him both physically and mentally throughout. If you have ever wondered what goes through the mind of an ultrarunner while they are out on the trail, you’ll definitely enjoy this video. It is an 18-minute short film that profiles the Badwater quite well.
