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.
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!"
