30 Bananas a Day!

Mike Arnstein wins Vermont 100miler ULTRA MARATHON.

The VT100 is one of the oldest ultra marathons around. Mike just won it. There was a strong field and the monkey man powered on fruit crushed em to win in 15:26.

 

A few days before Mike showed me his 'raw power bar'. Its a 1000cal hit of pitted dates vacum sealed in a compact block. Ive been eating them non stop since he showed me. They are only 2$ a pop.

 

Winning your first big ultra is the hardest one many say.  I expect Mike will be dominating the ultra scene over the next 10 years now that he has proven himself that he can smash the fast guys over 100miles of rocks and mountains.

That's awesome!! Anyone know how far ahead of the 2nd place person he was?
Erin.. He ran 15:26:20 and the runner that came in behind him was 15:34:08.
Looks like Leigh Schmitt is the one who came in second place behind him. Leigh Schmitt set the course record back in 2004 with a time of 14:53:09 it seems. Also set the 100k course record last year at 9:35:40.

Best time of 2010 was 16:01:40 and Michael got 5th place with 17:12:30. So he improved a lot in this past year. Looking for other people that also competed in 2010, next person to have competed again was the 8th placer of 2010, Brian Rusiecki, with 17:48:03. He got 3rd place this year with 15:53:50. Which is also a real good improvement. Wonder what type of diet he eats.
He is my hero!
MINE TOO ;D

With two miles to go, Arnstein said to the camcorder his pacer held:

 

"I'm out here killing myself so you'll freakin' buy some apples!"

Big up!
wow maybe the biggest proof that this works
wow, this is sooo great! :)
congrats!!!
Congratulations Mike! You are an inspiration to all!
He's a machine! Huge congrats!
