Race Report

Crossed the finish line at 5:12 a.m. Tuesday morning (started 6 a.m. Monday morning), with a total elapsed time of 47hr:12min, inclusive of two hours for unplanned sleep the first day and 1.5 hours to fix a few problems with my “chassis.” The focus was on having fun and finishing. Anything else was a bonus. Finished strong and in good spirits, which persisted most of the way, with the heat not bothersome (114-117F).

Many times thought of Mobius Kids and the privilege I had of running to benefit kids and their parents. My crew of five wonderful individuals was focused on that mission too, and frequently spoke of it, perhaps to motivate me. It was very satisfying to cross the finish line holding hands with them.

As satisfying as the race was, the greatest satisfaction has come from knowing the run raised both awareness of the need for our community to fund Mobius Kids and $10,775!

A hearty congratulations to you, Dave, for an outstanding race! It was a pleasure training with you and sharing the road from Badwater to Whitney with you.
Can I still donate to Mobius?
