An attempt at a brief yet thorough bio of Mark Manz, the runner: I've been running basically since I could walk. In elementary school I was a nerdy kid who wasn't particularly athletic. In 3rd grade we had to run a timed mile for PE class. Not only did I win, I lapped everyone else in class. I had found something I was actually good at sports-wise. I've never been the most coordinated but I...

I've always considered myself an average athlete... with above average determination. I've done over 15 marathons - some of them in 5 hours and some of them closer to 3.

I achieved that goal in 2003. My other...

The run did not go very...
