We Did It!

"We did it, we did it, we did it - hooray!"
- from Dora the Explorer


Gretchen and me, shortly after her 100-mile finish this morning


Well, more accurately, SHE did it - I was pretty much just along for the ride. But the ride was nearly incredible; Gretchen was a complete studette in posting her second Tahoe Rim Trail 100-mile finish, and I was honored to be able to witness it.

I may publish a brief post about my pacer experience later this week, but I really don't want to take too much attention away from the real star - so head over to Gretchen's blog and tell her congrats. I'm guessing she'll have a full race report in the near future, but for now, I can only hope she's catching up on some sleep.

Donald, I have to say, I think I was the odd ball person staring at you in the Raley's early Saturday morning. Did you happen to stop there? My friends and I stopped to use the restroom before heading to the Tunnel Creek aid station and I saw you and said "I think I read his blog!" but I was too embarrassed to stop and ask and it was too early in the morning! :-)

Regardless, I just wanted to see if it was in fact you that I saw. I later told my friends (who are not blog people) all about you and how I read your blog daily.

Congrats to Gretchen. I look forward to reading her report!

Thanks for posting the pic; you guys both look great! I'm looking forward to Gretchen's report and catching up with both of you more offline.

TrailMomma: that was me, loading up on my bagels, bananas and CLIF bars for the day ... you should have said hi! That would have been cool. Maybe next year?

I hope your weekend went well also.

I love that picture.

"Thanks" can't even come close to saying how I feel. Rest assured, you were no mere witness, but a critical part of an incredible experience. You're the best, kid.
