First of all, thank you Ian for asking me to be a part of this team of great people and amazing runners.
Thank you van 1 for all your encouragement and support!
I’m kinda new to running and I knew this wasn’t gonna be easy, but I seriously under estimated how evil the hills would be (and my hills were not the hardest in this race). There might have been a few moments when I wished I had never agreed to do this, but in the end it was all worth it!!! The accomplishment, the fun, the laughs, the friends, the support… it was all a memorable and amazing experience!
I will never forget… the smell of cow manure as I’m trying to make it up the first evil hill, Kristin with a glass of chocolate milk for me after my run, Elise running with me out of Reading, cause I was scared, Josh and all his kills on his 8 mile run, Julie looking so happy on every run, Rose and her amazing speed walk up the hills, the bonfire at exchange 25, the creepy lady that asked what this was all about, the best breakfast ever in Jim Thorpe and how great it felt to be DONE!!! Thanks everybody! Tammy
