Ramadan Is Here
Thursday the 13th of September is the first day of Ramadan. It is a month of fasting for Muslims around the globe from sunrise to sunset for a full lunar month. It is not only about fasting from food and water, its about being good, moral peace keeping people. More importantly, it is a bout a spiritual purification that comes from being deprived of the basic necessities of life in order to appreciate the blessing bestowed upon us, and to realize that there are people worse off, and that it is our duty to aid them. It can be seen as a detoxification period that trains the body and mind.
You can’t run very far without water or food. So how does this affect my training? Ill be running a lot at night.
-Umstead 50 Miles - 3/31/07 - 50 Miles - Raleigh, NC - 9:44:30 - 22nd place out of 107 runners. This run was an attempt to run 100 miles. I decided to drop out at mile 75, my 50 mile time is however counted.
