Megan & Darrell recap the mid-August race weekend of Anchor Down Ultramarathon and the Falmouth Road Race. They talk about each race and the experience they each had at each. The conversation moves to comparing the big differences between the two experiences, they focus on the one BIG difference…and its what everything circles back around to…fun.
Is there a difference between “fun”, “enjoyment”, and “satisfaction”? Can they exist independently? Is it enough to keep you running (or working out period)? Let’s figure it out.
You can learn more about Anchor Down Ultramarathon at www.AnchorDownUltra.com, and check out www.RunTrueNorth.com to learn about their company and other events (including my favorite – Narragansett Summer Running Festival!).
