Our final day in Ireland was capped off with a trip up 3,127 foot Mount Brandon (Cnoc Bréanainn). Portals through the clouds to the Atlantic Ocean and magical ridges dropping to miniature lakes. As they say in Ireland, “That’s the stuff!” I couldn’t agree more. Can’t wait to go back!

“I'm convinced that a lot of people run ultramarathons for the same reason they take mood-altering drugs. I don't mean to minimize the gifts of friendship, achievement, and closeness to nature that I've received in my running carer. But the longer and farther I ran, the more I realized that what I was often chasing was a state of mind - a place where worries that seemed monumental melted away, where the beauty and timelessness of the universe, of the present moment, came into sharp focus.”
Scott Jurek, Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness

“Sometimes you just do things!”
Scott Jurek, Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness

“We all lose sometimes. We fail to get what we want. Friends and loved ones leave. We make a decision we regret. We try our hardest and come up short. It's not the losing that defines us. It's how we lose. It's what we do afterward.”
Scott Jurek, Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness
