    • Doug thank you so very much to you and your family!!! Not only did you put us up and do the contrast tubs with me. You also were with me every step of the way. I knew I could count on Pauline reading a new comment from you every time I saw her. The recordings were awesome as well. Thanks for posting the blog link to your Facebook as well. Great to connect with old friends and make some new ones along the way. Hope we can hang out again soon!! Give everyone a hug and kiss from P and I. By the way…you were right, Gabor was there with me every step and he would be pretty stoked about the whole thing.

    • Aloha Roodi. I have had my share of BBQ and maybe 1or 2 beers since the finish. Going to enjoy the next few days of no training before i start to train for the next one. Thanks for the great message on my iPod!

  13. Nice work, man. You are nuts. Of course, you have always been nuts. Very impressed.

    • Thanks Keith! I need to get you out to one of these races sometime. You would have a blast. Hopefully I get into Western States next year and you can come along and pace me for a few miles!
