A very tired me

Running two plus marathons in a day isn't easy - believe me! - especially on slopes that make Mt. Bonnell in Austin look flat. I'm wiped out. And in 6 short hours, I get to do it again.

Diana got me through some very tough times again today. I honestly don't think I'd have made it this far without her. Sometimes you just get lucky - the planets aligned.

So 6 hopefully not such tough days to go! Loerrach will be a wonderful sight.

Peace and love.

You're definitely the guts man! Good job, RS.

Keep on, keeping on, you the man!

Welcome to the salt fan club!
Thank you for continuing to post these reports for us. While you may be unable to "float" as you like to with those big feet, I know you have slow, steady, and strong in you!

Haiku for downhill:

Pain, pain go away
let the salt heal Russell's limbs
float to the finish

Russell -- Your laid-back demeanor notwithstanding, you rock like Led Zeppelin in their prime. Keep it up!

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

I'm sending energy to you several times a day Russ.

My vision is you crossing that finish line with all those tired expectations crumbling to dust.

Not our expectations. Your expectations, your fear, your pain, your weakness.

You own that race!

Russ, You give a whole new meaning to the saying "life is a journey." :) Great job by both you and Diana!
