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: Matt Rutledge

Occupation: Computer geek(self proclaimed) for a big company

First Ultra: Technically the Greenland 50k but officially the Run Rabbit Run 100

We literally had too many good quotes from this one to pick a title.  Matt trained a year for his attempt at Run Rabbit Run 100 in Steamboat Springs.  He is the first runner we have had that first hired a coach.  How did that work out for him?  What did he learn about running for his next big race?  And, our favorite, what wildlife scares him to death?  You aren’t gonna guess this one.  Enjoy another account from the first ultra of this runner!
