Do you find yourself the last person you want to be?

Are you living in the cage of life, in quiet despair?

Do you want to retreat from the comfortable fantasy position and become a trapped animal of life, or do you want to find a way out and be the master of life?

Finding Ultra is a process in which a spinning top on a steel wire, a middle-aged man in urgent need of lubrication, reverses through diet and sports and breaks away from the desperate “normal life”.

The author recalled his extraordinary journey, from standing on the starting line of the Altman World Super Ironman Championships – including about 511 km of swimming, cycling, and running races, to achieving the more difficult EPIC5 – to completing five super triathlons.

Rich showed us the power of running, presented us with the most perfect and true self-war, and a life journey to find the meaning of personal life.

This book not only makes people watch a series of amazing sports achievements but provides practical information for people who are also planning to change themselves – experience related to exercise and diet. In addition, this book also strongly proves that breaking the shackles of bondage and one’s willpower can achieve something.

Finding Ultra is one of the Best Running Books for Beginners
