Awesome! In the words of Rodney Dangerfield, "thanks to exercise, people are dying healthier than ever."

Have a great time!

Thank you all I did. It was really a challenge because Edinburgh and Musslewhite are VERY hilly. My game plan was to take advantage of the first 13.1 miles and then the downward slopes. However the weather was a bitch. We started in constant rain, then it got hot, then it got windy. On the last 7 miles we had headwinds of about 30mph. That and going slow up hills made my time of 6.26.11 quite pedestrian. But I’m not a professional runner so I’ll take it. You had to finish in 7hrs 30 minutes to get a medal and a finisher’s T shirt. I can add that to the 3 Inhave from London and one for Brighton.
