Patrick Caron just ran the 3rd fastest 100 miler in the world for 2017. He’s 20, has big plans for his future, a positive outlook, super quick lets, and a pretty solid head on his shoulders.
Patrick is the high school kid who scored straight A’s, but is passing on college. Unsure what he’ll be doing in two years, but has a running streak planned that lasts forty four years. Patrick wants to run everything, but has a hard time choosing one race he’d like to target. Here’s his ultrasignup.
What were you doing when you were 20? Running an average of 16 miles/day? Volunteering for a 501(c)3 to help those affected by addiction? Patrick is doing this along with trying to find a way to make a living in this silly sport of ours and we have a good talk about becoming a professional ultrarunner in the digital age.
