Javelina jundred…Completed!

Aloha everyone!
Apologies for the delayed update. The crewing/blogging team needs to be fired, or at minimum trained as to what “update at 91 mi” means. Crewing/blogging was replaced with pacing for the last nine long but gorgeous miles. It was all worth it to see an Arizona sunrise in the middle of the desert. Michael finished in ~25 hrs 42 min! He dedicated his last loop in honor of those affected by breast cancer (October is breast cancer awareness month) and wore a limited edition Reyn Spooner Aloha shirt, with proceeds going to Kapi’olani Breast Center, established to prevent and treat breast cancer.
Much Aloha everyone! We couldn’t have done it without all your encouraging and supportive words! Off to eat and sleep!
