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.

thanks guys!

here's the mother of all race reports:

these ziyad baking dates-i read the package also has vegetable oil inside.  Is it tasty?

....I just bought 5 of em.

The Ziyad date blocks and Mike & I get, they dont have any added veg oil. If you see veg oil used on dried fruits its just used so the fruit doesnt stick (not that any of us would care) and its VERY minimal.

Anyone know how to make these treats at home? These would be the answer to all social situations. Take along 2 of these and eat them and then tell me if you crave cooked garbage :-)

if not, then is there any place I can get these from the U.K?

 

Please let me know anyone, thanks

 

What an animal!
You rock man!

a month later and he comes in 4th at Leadville - remarkable. It really looks like Mike has

found what works best for him at the ultra level and is now coming into his own.

Great job and great inspiration Mike!

Fourth at Leadville, damn!  Amazing.

The shoes in that photo Mike was wearing are now on a runners feet here in Thailand. The guys here wear their racing flats down to the sock liner lol!

I thought I heard Mike say dates remind him of cooked food and do not make him feel good?

To the Arnstein Family and the entire lfrv community -  Keep doing, and surely the best is yet to come.  Stay married too ^<>^...xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
