Day 80 - Finished!!!

The running went fairly smoothly today - mostly on the four lane Route 1 with lots of traffic. It was great to reach the finish!!!! It was a super day that might only have been better if Justin and Marty had crossed the finish line today also, but stuff happens.

This endeavor couldn't have been completed without super crew!!! Thanks to many folks - will write more about that later.

  5. Great job to both of you! Hope to meet you someday soon.

  6. Congrats from a new runner that's just starting out. I hope to run the states on trail one day as well, perhaps after my first 50 miler! Party hard, you guys earned it !!

  7. Previously I've sent to both you, Mike, and Jennifer, my heartiest of congratulations. Just now, though, I'm struck with [behold!]: A Thought. IF we were both still in the Navy (well, OK, if I'd've gotten in--actually in--in the first place) I would now have to salute you as my senior officer. Sorta/kinda like: OCSA R. Limacher, USNR, now snaps to attention (quickly making sure he's wearing the uniform hat and that it's squarely adjusted) and righteously salutes CMDR M. Samuelson, USN!!! Right?
    Or, actually I like to think of it in rock 'n' roll terms, mixed with what the Vol-State race director loves to say in the HEAT of July in Tennessee: "For those about to fry, we sa-luuuuuuuuuuute you!!!"
    Good job. Consider yourself snappily saluted (as well as "fried"). We'll "talk" later. ;-)
