Another marathon finish, another state.  Easy race, and finished a little more than 25% of the goal.  It was a emotional roller coaster of a day.  I learned that I was banned from the Delaware and Maryland race for which I was registered.  Luckily i built in some redundancy into the schedule.  That redundancy is for DNF or race director caused DNS.  I have backup races already scheduled for Delaware and Maryland later in the year.  It's not possible to have redundancy for all the states.  Hope it does happen too many more times.

In Kentucky


God the marathon finish.  Got the state added to the tally. A little less than 20% (10/51 = 19.61%)

Photographers are used to the pace of the runners.  The wheelchairs are a different pace, and a rarity.  They don't know how to lead us to take the picture they want.  I got the feet for pictures, just not the face.

In Tennessee

The border is hilly.  Hope the marathon course is not as hilly.


Got the finish.  Got the state.

Four (4) flats during the race. Three (3) of them on the wheel that is the most difficult to change.

I hope to get back to having nothing to report but a marathon finish and another state captured.

In Arkansas


As pointed out before stories require a conflict. Even in the Disney movie there is the moment the children worry about being eaten.  Being more than 1/10 done my normalcy meter can also be biased such that what others would consider a reportable event, I now see as another day same old stuff.

The one report I want to make is another marathon finish.
