I DID IT

" You've got two hours to do 3.5 miles so we best get moving."


-Or something similiar to those words from Pacer Ann at the remaining miles from Umstead. I found this quite hilarious..but oh so true.

I finished in 29 hours 20 minutes.

More to come soon, but first:

-it is true about the bad patches. There will be bad patches, then they will go away.To hopefully become good patches.
-it is darkest before dawn. And watching that second sunrise come up does make you feel better.
-no food really looks good after twenty some hours.
-any small uphill (despite any earlier scoffings about what hills on the Umstead course) become hills after twenty some hours of running.
-pacers are angels in running shoes. THANK you Steve and Ann!!!!

  3. Absolutely awesome job! I can not wait to read your post. I am planning my first 50 miler later this year, so I really enjoy reading anyone else tackling a distance for the first time.

    If you get a chance, please visit my running web site, Faithful Soles. I have a categorized and searchable Running Blog Database on there and would appreciate it if you would link your blog to it. We have quite a few trail and ultra-runners on it already.

    When you write your full story about it, I would love for you to consider sending into us to use as a "Story of the Week". You can really inspire a lot of people. Once again, great going!
