Excellent article on the effects of Ibuprofen (NSAIDS) and it's effects during ultramarathons from iRunFar.

Runners take heed.

I saw that too, and had heard of Erik Skaggs' hospitalization. Scary.

I have not taken pain relievers in years unless I've had an impact injury (crash or fall). But I don't have migraines, arthritis (that I know of) or other chronic issues.

When it comes to running, pain is my cue to find a different way of doing things. It's worked up to 30+ miles, anyway.
