NUMBER 67 – Less than 100 miles remaining for the old man! He called in tonight and let me know that he was having a hamburger. His side/back pain has diminished from all the Gatorade he consumed. He occasionally feels it returning and pounds more Gatorade for the electrolytes, and it subsides yet again. Unfortunately, the hamstring tightness has not left him. His quote for this year’s race, “I am just dragging my leg behind me.”

He said he was in Shelbyville, Tennessee when he called , but the race check-in has him at mile 217 and past Lewisburg. Maybe he is between Lewisburg and Shelbyville. Thus far, the screwed (runners competing without any support) division has 61 runners and Richard is 40th.

He has always finished under the allotted time frame. He is just running to finish now. It will be close, but he can still make it!
