HE's DONE!


He's done. I took tons of pictures and tiny little short videos, which I'll string together at some point and make a slide show out of. He finished at 9:30, meaning that he ran/hiked/walked 100 miles in 27.5 hours.

There was very little phone service, and I never knew when I would have it. Internet? Fugettaboutit.

Yes, his feet hurt. Yes, I was concerned. It was a long and emotional night for me, and for him, as well.
He (and I) will post more after a couple days. Right now, it's time for sleep/pizza/laying horizontal.

  1. He is a man among boys for sure.
    Big congrats for getting that done.

    I am sure his feet do hurt and they have good reason.

    Amazing. Stupendous. Incredible. I don't know where to stop so I just will.

  3. Excellent!! That was a VERY good time for a first 100 miler. Please pass my congratulations along to Baboo or Mr. Geek Girl..
    Recoverite is a great product from Hammergel, if you have any. It took the spastic sudden cramps out of my legs that used to happen to me after 100's (or near 100s.)
    Don't be worried if he can't sleep much. Usually you are too jacked up even though exhausted after these events.
    Again, very impressed, very cool performance!!!

2016

Even though I was in awful shape in 2016 I was still stubborn and foohardy...so I spent a year running down whatever fitness base I had left...
