Here is a great article that talks about Scott Jurek, perhaps that best ultra runner of all time. He has accomplished more in the ultra running community than anyone else. However, recently he has almost dropped off the map.

Career Highlights:
3-Time Spartathlon Winner
2-Time Winner-Course Record Holder Badwater Ultramarathon
7-time Winner-Course Record Holder Western States 100

And numerous other top finishes.

This article dives into what makes Scott tick and also show perhaps what has made him so successful is now causing him to question why he is even running. It's a long article, but well worth the read, a side note Scott is a fellow Minnesotan who grew up near the Duluth area.
