Sherb Talk: Running America with Marshall Ulrich

In 2008 at the age of 57, Marshall Ulrich ran across the United States, completing the mind-bending and body-breaking equivalent of 117 back-to-back marathons in 52.5 days, running an average of more than 400 miles a week.

Marshall’s "Running on Empty" speaking message and the metaphor of the run are universal, whether you’re an athlete or not. It’s about facing forward and taking the next step. It’s about not flinching when the road gets rough or you miss a turn, and about finding another way when the bridge you planned to cross has collapsed. It’s about goal setting and doing what you say you’ll do and not letting anything or anyone stop your progress. Ultimately, it’s about facing the toughest challenges, enduring crushing setbacks, accepting friendship and love, and finding fulfillment.

Marshall Ulrich is a versatile, world-class extreme endurance athlete: an ultrarunning icon, Seven Summits mountaineer, and competitive adventure racer. His prolific athletic career has earned him numerous wins, records, and firsts on some of the toughest courses in the world and taken him to the top of the highest mountains on every continent—all in his forties and fifties.

Dubbed by Outside magazine as an Endurance King, he defies the ideas of “too far,” “too old,” and “not possible.”
