Redding ’88: Ultra Marathon Man

Greg Redding runningGreg Redding ’88 has participated in seven, finished in five, 100-mile ultramarathons, all since 2009!  That doesn’t count to standard marathons, mini-, half- or “mini-ultras” he has run, too.  For himself as a runner, the mind-body relationship is important, seeing each race as both a physical endeavor and a mental endeavor.  In a recent interview, he stated, “It’s a crazy thing to think about in an abstract way.  It’s not the distance (of the race) that bothers me, it’s the amount of time.”  Click here for a link to a past online running story written by Greg.

Greg is Professor of German at Wabash.  He earned his MA and PhD in German Literature at the University of Cincinnati.
