Jim– The terrain today had me expecting to see Wile E. Coyote disapearing off a cliff in a puff of smoke, after failing yet again to catch the road runner. This place is beautiful in a badass kind of way. And since I’m running everyday as an unofficail racer, I’ve become a total tourist. Lots of pictures coming soon. #SelfiePractise #ILoveRunning
Rebecca – Went into this run with dread and self-doubt. The terrain was much more difficult to run than I thought. the heat was unrelenting. I ran out of water on both long stretches. The heat made it almost impossible to eat or take salt. By mile 30 I was not sure I would be able to finish. After 4-5 cups of coke and a handful of grapes I headed out. I saw a beaver, a deer and aspen trees. And I was rewarded with one of the most gorgeous sunsets I’ve ever seen. The last 6 miles were downhill and I was able to run into the finish line with a smile on my face. It’s amazing what a person will do for one of John’s delicious grilled cheese sandwiches and a frosty cold beer. Very pleased with the end result of today.
cindy kosmicki– Day 5 is DONE!! Tricia, Cheri, and I stuck together once again and I tell you what…..There is NO WAY I would have finished this day without those two! We got eachother through what we all decided was thee toughtest day physically and mentally of our entire lives!! This is by far harder then the 100 mile I did in March. I am so flipping proud of us that I cant even tell you! We came in 2 1/2hrs under cutoff and could not be happier!!! These ladies will be life long friends, I tell you what!! Its late and I’m rambling so I’m going to end this.:) I will post again after day 6 is done!!:)
