Ulrich, Marshall - Goes out of body running the Badwater course
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
from Explorers of the Infinite – Maria Coffey
In 1993, Marshall Ulrich was running the Badwater course, trying to break his own record. He set out at 6pm watched the sun go down, and carried on running into the night. At some point, around the forty mile mark, he felt himself leave his body. Suddenly the effort of running was gone – from above, he watched his lone figure pounding along the road, he could hear his footfall and see his support team waiting at certain stages with food and water. He saw himself eating and drinking as he ran.
‘It was like watching myself on a movie screen’ he says ‘I lost all sense of time. It could have been only 10 minutes that had passed, but then I realised that dawn was coming, the sun was about to rise. I knew it was time to go back into my body’
