giant blueberries chase hallucinating ultramarathon runners down a hill

#161 "Mile 87"

I love reading stories about ultramarathons that have been written by ultrarunners. Without a doubt, I live vicariously through these amazing athletes. I don't think I have the guts or desire to run 100 miles in a day's time. Some of these runners hallucinate in the latter part of the race. Yet, they still seem to finish. Are there shared hallucinations? There are reports of such phenomenon, including shared dreaming. I was eating a bowl of big, juicy blueberries when I got the idea for this comic. If I saw a blueberry as big as the ones in the drawing, would I run? If it was barreling down at me, yes. If it was just sitting there, I'd dive in, despite ending up looking like Violet Beauregard in Willy Wonka, and possibly missing out on a personal record. Crayons were the only choice for this panel.
