Crossfit Endurance -- Carl Borg finishes AC 100
34 year old Carl Borg finished the Angeles Crest 100 Mile Endurance Run (AC 100) this past weekend in a time of 29 hours, 31 minutes. He finished 52nd out of 98 finishers (135 starters). Carl subscribes to the Crossfit Endurance methodology that emphasizes functional training over long slow sport specific training. From what I've read, Carl's longest run before the AC 100 was 13 miles.
See an older post or two for more on this somewhat controversial subject.
I'm looking for more information about Carl and his training, and would love to even get a chance to talk to him to learn more about his training and get an idea for how he feels as he recovers from that tough run.
Congrats Carl on a great finish! If you read this, please drop me a comment.
