This Is How You Get Really High
I read about this marathon in the New York Times recently - it's not for the faint of heart.
The Mount Lemmon Marathon annually takes place near Tucson, Arizona in the fall and features a 7,700-foot climb of 26.2 miles. That's really high!
No wonder it's billed as the "world's toughest road marathon". Check it out and read what veteran marathoner Bart Yasso has to say about this test of endurance. Although, not a participant, he was a special guest at the event this past fall.
