a RUN supreme

Exploring what it takes to become an ultra endurance athlete

Self Support

As runs get longer and longer, more food, less clothing and just an overall change in the requirements for the run simply change. With the cold mornings quickly moving into warm days, along with my runs becoming increasingly longer, I am having to consider more and more what I bring with me. Most of my runs are alone, and lately they’ve been on extremely rural back roads with no hope of a quick water refill at a gas station. In this video I quickly discuss my initial take on self support and the challenges therein. Please let me know what best practices you have come upon when carrying all of your own food and gear on your back or waist.
