My First Ultra is a regular series with everyday runners sharing their account of their very first attempt at an Ultra, whether successful or not.  As inspiring

as the elites are, the everyday runners really get us inspired here at Becoming Ultra!

Name: Chris Harrington

Occupation: Attorney

First Ultra: Leadville Silver Rush 50

Time trained: 7+months

Chris loves running.  You can tell after talking to him for five minutes.  He started only a few years ago and has some pretty awesome experiences to share with us.  He used the word “quagmire” in a sentence which impressed us as much as the miles he put in.  Listen for his two points on high altitude training and what exactly he screamed in the porto potty at the half way point of his first ultra!
