Can I have some more?

Awesome, awesome, awesome! That's all I can say. What an experience!

I finished (if you couldn't tell!) 27 hours 20 minutes 38 seconds! I placed 35 out of 98 starters!

My feet took a beating. My first blister appeared at mile 26 and it just got worse! My calves are really tight, but the rest of my body feels absolutely fine!

More to come...

I am so f'en proud of you Brad! It was great sharing the experience with you and I shall remember it forever. You looked so strong and fresh when you came rippin' through the finish. I hope to be running with you for a long time.

Congrats Brad! I know its hard to put it into words right now (it took me almost two weeks to write my report). Savor the feeling as long as you can and take your time with the recovery. I definitely learned that the muscles recover much quicker than all those bits that hold them together. See you next month at Firetrails!

Thanks everyone! It's hard to believe that it's over. I can remember at certain times during the night that I thought I would never make it to the next aid station, or I would never make it out of the aid station. It does go by very quickly!
I can't wait for the soreness to go away so I can get back out there and run another one hundred miles!

Great job, and way to beat your goal! You 100-milers are a testament to perserverence and the ability to ignore pain. Congrats!

Real happy for you Brad. I hope you are still walking (gingerly I am sure) on Cloud 9.

I just got back from a nice 5 mile trail run this evening. I'm ramping right back up for an easy 20 miles Saturday then next Saturday another 50 mile race!
