Westbrook’s final finish time for the 500K (314 mile) (although for RW it was 314 plus approximately 10 miles since he went off course at some point and had to back track) Last Annual Vol State Road Race 9:17:17:42 = 9 days, 17 hours, 17 minutes, and 42 seconds. That puts him finishing at 1:47 in the morning. And for his finishing quote: 10 minutes after finishing he says, “I’m just standing up to see if I can stand up.” Two more runners remain on the road and should be finishing soon. Westbrook finished just in front of the Tortoise and a little ways in front of Oprah and her “clicking heels.”

“I’m never doing that again.”
