FANS All-Nighter

No, I wasn't running. I was grazing at the aid station buffet. Lots of grazing. While others were doing lots of running. Congrats to all the FANS runners! Wow... the grit and determination it takes to go so long and so far. First in the heat, and then especially through those lonely, too-quiet hours of the night. It was impressive, and intimidating. Shoot, I even got tired of grazing after so long. (Ok, not really.) Again, Congrats to all the runners for pushing themselves to their limit, in both the 12 hour and 24 hour events.

For some reason I only took a couple pictures...

the 12 hour winner, still running strong at the end :


royalty on the course, just one of a number of entertaining hats :



Ok, during a few of those lonely, too-quiet hours of the night I was a little bummed that a certain trail runner who shall not be named didn't make it to the aid station for 4th shift... but now I should thank him for this nice piece of granite. So Thanks, Mr. shall not be named runner. :)

Hey Wayne! Can't believe i just found your blog! The plaques make great coasters with the felt bottom, not to mention great conversation pieces.
