Future Ultramarathon Dude

Guy at Jack Rabbit:  Nice running pack!  You doing a long run today?

Me: No, just a short run, but I’m coming from work, so I need the bag.

Guy: You work here in Brooklyn or over in Manhattan?

Me: The Bronx, actually.

Guy: Whoa!  You ran all the way from the Bronx?

Me: Not today, but I have.

Guy: Are you an ultramarathon dude or something?

Me: Eventually.  That’s the plan anyway.


About Chris Van Dyke

I am a 33 year-old high school English teacher and long-distance runner. I live in Brooklyn with my partner, our 3 year-old son and 1 year-old daughter and a growing collection of muppets and trains. Besides running and teaching I like to draw, read, write, cook, and play the harmonica. While I didn't get to run my first ultra-marathon on my birthday, I've got a few more I've set my sights on. You can follow my (seldom updated) twitter feed @aboutrunning. I also blog as part of the Run Smiley Collective.
