      BadDawg, I thought of you out there, and I made sure to get at least 5 x 13.1.

        I just came back from 17, and I'm beat.  Y'all are amazing.

         

        I ran 20a at KM100 and everyone was congrating me. While I ran faster, they ran 5x longer. At FANS, I ran two laps (5sorry mi) and again people who ran 30x more were congrating me. Ultra folk are scary tenacious and kinda goofy.

        Set a man afire and he'll be warm the rest of his life.

          Also, hearing what Don when trough and narrowly escaping a medical withdrawl, his last laps and short laps were a sight to see, way to come back.

                  Sweet!  I am just floored by the demonstrations of endurance.  So much awesomeness.

                          Did Bruce Leasure run in the wrong direction to get a -25 miles credit?

                            I think he was the guy taking pictures.  There were two guys that just walked the loop and took pics for all 12 hours that I was out there.  They were there again in the morning when I did a loop with DB.  It was a bike path around a lake.  I don't know how different all these pics are going to be, or why they need 50 of each person.

                              that wasn't the day he wanted.  knowing he was not feeling the best the week leading into it I'm sure it was a tough day for him.  sorry to hear about that. 

                               

                              that level of endurance running sure looks like a hell of a brutal sport.  I can harldy relate to that kind of training and effort and can only hope he can recover well.

                                Great running everybody. Cant imagine throwing down nearly 130 miles under any conditions let alone coughing the whole time. Great job with the 2nd place, WG! And Buzzie, any miles that soon after NC24 is amazing. I hit a training wall two weeks after NC24 where my legs were completely dead.
