Well, I lost my S in California, but I found it again in Vermont, but I lost my phone. All things equal, I'd rather have my S!
I found a lot of things in Vermont besides my S.
I found a resolve I didn't know I had. It's easy to keep going and keep smiling when everything is going well, it's that adversity that tells you something about yourself. How will you react?
Well, I learned a lot about myself in Vermont, and I liked most of what I learned. I learned that you can't kill the Rooster! I learned that the Rooster aint all of that, but he may just be enough. I also learned that I have some really great friends with huge hearts and amazing abilities.
I took some cool audio during the run but don't have a clue on how to post it, I'd love to combine that with my pictures and make a slideshow, if anyone can help... for now, here are some pictures:
The Beautiful Andrea finished her first 100K
A Florida contingent pre-race: Pam, Candi (3rd female in 100k!), Adam (2 x100 finished in 3 months for him!), Tracy (finished her first 100 M!) AMan (1 down, 3 to go), Elaine (helped Andrea finish, thank you, thank you!), Becky (redemption from last year, opened up a can of Whop @ss on tha course and finished her first 100M), bottom row, Andrea, Patrick (finished his first 100M), Roger (fast through 47, but pulled by an evil doctor for weight loss, like the commercial says Roger, you gotta eat!), and the star of the day Andy Barrett, led the Florida Ultrarunners with a sub-24 finish in his first ever attempt at the distance, way to go Andy!!)
On the right is Arkansas Race director and fellow Slammer Chrissy Ferguson.
The good Doctor with Susie from Austrailia
The Pride of Topeka and fellow Slammer, Willie Lambert
Believe me you don't want to see what's under those bandages. If you are sane and like your feet never run 100 Miles (especially not 4 times!)
