My name is Van Phan. I have an illness. It is called UCD-Ultra Compulsive Disorder. Criteria for the diagnosis: 1) Signing up for as many ultras that your body, budget, and family can handle 2) Continuing to run ultras despite swearing them off somewhere in a 100, 62, 50, or 31 miler 3) Plunging into severe depression or exhibiting irritibility if injured or unable to run. If you have the same disease and are seeking comfort in others who share this sickness, read on. I am here for you.
