My wife and I will see you at some point. I am not sure how far I will go or if I can start. My knee finally decided it had enough last Sunday in Vermont. Christa is running the 50 miler and I will be happy to just be able to start. I will see how long it lasts. With some TLC this week, no running and two RMT visits I am hopeful I will be on the trail.

I will be at the dinner Friday...

Hope to see y'all at SS. I'll be a rogue volunteer after the 25K, then might pace curly in the last 7K of her 50M.

Have you seen the forecast? 4 degrees? Actually, it should be fantastic running weather, sunny and 16 in the afternoon.
It's a hill. Get over it!

have an awesome time!!!

remember: there is always a second wind. And in ultras, a third and fourth. So if you feel crappy, just keep going! It will pass!

For the record, I didn't feel capable of CYCLING 100 miles while I was in France. :oops:

She's a rock star....it was an honour to be a part of your experience Sylvie...you looked amazing from start to finish that's for sure! Awesome run you are amazing. Nice to see Ken B again who ran final 2 laps with Sylvie (I did #6).

Nice to see Ron out on course a few times., I kept calling at him and took photos as well (not sure he remembered who I was). Also saw Chris McPeake, didn't go over and say hello as he was busy running 100 miles, but I took some photos for him.
