Default Trail Ultrarunner Stealing Thunder from DK

3 years ago I posted info about some running loons called the Marathon
Maniacs. Well one of their own has chosen to steal some thunder from
DK. First it was Pam Reed, now a virtual unknown regular guys is
steal some jucie from Karnazes.
-

"But while Karnazes keeps seeking to redefine human endurance limits,
he always seems to be a step behind. Last year, he announced he wanted
to be the first person to run 300 miles. His nemesis, ultramarathoner
Pam Reed, quietly went ahead and did it first. Now, as Karnazes is
busy preparing to be the first person to do the 50/50/50, a
little-known ultrarunner named Sam Thompson is poised to steal his
thunder. In fact, Thompson is already about halfway there. Thompson,
who decided to run 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 days to let the
country know that "everything is not fixed" along the Mississippi Gulf
Coast and to raise money for Hurricane Katrina survivors, has finished
24 marathons in 24 days. According to his Web site, the 25-year-old
still is going strong and he should finish his endeavor by Aug. 19
before Karnazes even starts".

This guy's a lot faster than DK too...couple of sub 3's clocked. DK
says he's a 7:30 min/mile marathoner.
