He keeps his runs shorter these days, somewhere between 3 and 7 miles depending on the heat. Yet he's run in the Sierra, Death Valley, the Mendocino Headlands, and the feared "Trail from Hell" at the Cascade Crest 100 Mile, in the middle of the night with his pacing buddy, Eorl. In his hey-day Eli could run up to 25 miles at a stretch, carrying his own food, and stopping for water at all the streams.
Thanks buddy. You've earned your gray hair.
