About the Author

Frozen Ed Furtaw has been running marathons or longer races since 1978, and has completed over 100 ultramarathon races. He was one of the most successful competitors in the early years of the Barkley Marathons. This earned him the nickname Frozen Ed, after the Frozen Head Mountain area in Tennessee where the Barkley Marathons are held. Now a retired engineer living in southwestern Colorado, Frozen Ed continues to pursue the seemingly impossible goal of finishing the Barkley Marathons.
