“If you’re going to be an ultrarunner you need to embrace suffering.” So says 65-year old ultrarunner Errol “The Rocket” Jones, the subject of this excellent video from REI. In the 5-minute clip we get to meet Errol, learn about his philosophy of running, and watch him as he trains on the spectacular Bay Area Ridge Trail near San Francisco. Over the years, he has picked up quite a bit of wisdom about the sport, and it can serve as inspiration for the rest of us, even if we’re running more modest distances. This is a story of perseverance and persistence, which can see you through just about any challenge in life.
