I’d like to thank Tracy so much for supporting me during the race. I couldn’t have done it without her. She paced me 16 miles, walked back for 3.5 hours from Myrtle alone at 2:00 in the morning, and was incredible moral support.
I’d also like to thank Tallman, who drove up from Phoenix to meet me at mile 60 and pace me through the night. Unfortunately, we missed each other and Tallman roughed it in his car all night on the rim. I can’t thank him enough for giving up his weekend for me.
I put together a video with footage from cameras that both Tracy and I were carrying. I spent a lot of the race running with Carlos S. This was his first 100 and he showed tremendous tenacity running on feet that had more blisters than skin.
Also, for my birthday, Tracy got me an incredible new Suunto watch. It gives some amazing information and lasts up to 50 hours. I set the sensors on the longest setting so it missed a little mileage and elevation.
