11:25 pm
full day to complete, bring out the first of all dedicated. you don't find too many teens with a level of commitment it takes to train and complete such an intense challenge. >> once you start pushing to that distance, it's more about the mental battle touring the race. and less about the training that you've done beforehand. >> reporter: as a child, saratoga's singh battled with asthma that kept him from running sprints. he became focused on long distance. over the cost of the past few years he went from running a half marathon to a full 100-mile race this past summer. in the process, he became just the second person in the u.s. under 16 to complete an ultra marathon wind the 30-hour time limit. >> the reason that not many people do it at such a young age is because it's -- it has a lot to do with avoiding gratification. there's a lot of prolonged grat any case involved. it's not like a cross country race, which too is incredibly

11:27 pm
scholarship money for other students. lawrence scott, nbc bay area sports. >> i can't even imagine. this weekend in search of my deals i'm going very high-end to the iwani hotel for one deal and a two for one at starbucks for the other. first to the iwani in yosemite. the 30th anniversary of the vintner's holiday series. a free five-course meal at the hotel plus free wine from some of the top winemakers in california. the catch? you have to stay at least two nights at the hotel and that is not free. the deal is good until december 8th. if you're not up for the drive, here's another one to get you in the spirit. starbucks is offering two for one on holiday coffees tomorrow from 2:00 to 5:00 in the afternoon. follow me on twitte twitter @dianedwyernbc. stove wozniak was spotted at google headquarters pickingp his very own android smartphone
