Now That's How you Run a Hundred!

I'll write a long post later, including but not limited to: cool pictures: grilled-cheese sandwiches, car washes, ill-placed trees and snoring on the run.

But for now just let it be known that Dr. Frank cranked out a very impressive belt-buckle worthy debut at Umstead on Saturday/Sunday in North Carolina. The man is tough and trained and is in line to become the new Energizer Bunny (though not all the pictures will illustrate that!)

I was, and I am impressed!

More later I promise.

Thought you'd want to know that Frank Crossed the finish line (it didn't cross him!) in well under 27 hours! WTG man WTG!

Well done Dr. Frank

I am SO psyched (for you both!). I can't wait to hear the gory details...

Andy, you think he'd want to come out for Bighorn in June, I know a pretty good motel ...

And congrats to Frank's pacer, who managed a not-too-shabby 67 miles himself!

Three Reasons that Brought DrFrank to the Finish Line:

1. AM told me last year that 100 was possible (he made this statement one minute after I finished the my first 50 miler at Croom).
2. Andy guided me with plans, made suggestions, and ran training runs with me (some were very memorable).
3. I had THE best pacer anyone could ask for. A-man ran more mileage as a pacer at Umstead than most registered racers.

I learned a lot; he is a GREAT teacher!!! Man...he should do that for a livin'

Frank,
Well I darn sure can't blog for a living, well I can't blog and teach for living, and right now that teaching thing is the love of my life (BLF aside :)

And I was happy to be there, but like Dorothy in OZ, you had everything you needed all along.

Should have had me pace you. You'd have had all that and a bag of chips (healthy ones!)
