The Montreal Marathon swept through the city last weekend. It's a huge challenge for everyone involved. David Carroll runs ULTRA-marathons.  Those involve running or walking distances that are greater than a marathon - 50 k, 100k, 100 miles.  There's actually one next weekend, the Tour du Massif in the Laurentians.

David Carroll has run six 100-mile ultra-marathons. That's 161 km.  And then he wrote a novel about them, from the point of view of a 13-year-old boy. It's titled Ultra. David is also an award-winning CBC producer.
He spoke with us from our Toronto studio.
