Greg 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.
