It’s useful to look at “sister” sports to explore possibilities for endurance. Eventing is a “sister” sport because of what it demands from the horse, among other reasons. Another sport I consider a “sister” sport is that of ultramarathon running.
I’ve toyed with the idea of running ultramarathons (and once expressed that idea to my mom, who said “get another horse”) and generally keep an ear out for anything interesting occuring in that sector.
A blog recently addressed a topic I’ve certaintly had on my mind. Read it here: http://akrunning.blogspot.com/2010/12/prize-money.html and then tell me what you think.
Ultramarathoning started out much like endurance – a bunch of crazy people trying to go further than anyone else just because. $$ changes a sport. Good and Bad changes. I can see both sides and am totally undecided whether I think it’s a good thing or not.
