Uh oh... now what?
Oh my... WoW!!!! I understand "pending cert and so on", but... May 04, 1997, Sue Ellen Trapp, 377892m = 234.81 miles, one of the old ones, might have fallen. Great captures, Jeffrey Genova! Update: Falbo 389611.2m ≈242.093 miles!!!!!!!!!!

That was amazing watching these world-class runners cranking out the laps on Monday - smooth and fast - and consistent. I helped 6 hrs and left about 12 hrs into the race. Will be back toward the end (prior trail commitments mid-week). I got to meet a lot of people I've only known through the internet.
Are we there yet?
AKTrail - if you get a chance to talk with Bill Schultz, tell him George from Dawn to Dusk to Dawn said hi! He's the RD for the race and was a big help to me that day.
2017 Goals: for races not to be exercises in futility
I will. It's hard to read their bib numbers from the aid station, so I actually didn't figure out some of the people until I went and watched from the timing station for awhile (watching numbers come up as people crossed the mats and talking with Dave Combs and Laz) then saw more on the individual pictures posted on FB/Twitter after I was home.
Zach was very obvious - a machine cranking away with consistent fluid motion - and don't think I ever did see his bib number. Also the only one aiming for 12-hr record while most others were going for 6 days, some a little shorter.
