You were absolutely collosal out there. Th rain, mud, heat, and unbelievably surprising (to me)number of hills...you handled all of it well. I'm proud to know you!! Fall is coming pick another one and lets do a training run for it some time. Peace. --Mark

Congrats for making it 80 miles, that's still one hell of a long way and definitely a huge accomplishment in and of itself.

Kim,

I can imagine how tough that is to swallow, now that I've entered the DNF club as well. Know that 80 miles is effing amazing!! You won with fireworks in my book.

Your slow friend,
Luc

Kim,
Hey, you made 80 miles, that's something to be proud of. It sounds like the weather was a real problem. Stay strong and keep your head up. If you want to come down and run at Mohican let me know. Keep on runnin Terri

80? 80?!?!?! Might I add that I've never even ridden my bike that far?!? Damn - that is amazing! Yeah it may be a dnf but just remember to compare yourself against coworkers - not the other runners. You are certainly in a very elite league.

Simply amazing if you ask me!

Well...sheesh...I think almost should count in ultras just as it does in horseshoes. It was great seeing you. You're amazing to me. So many people look up to you and are inspired by 80 miles just the same as 100. Keep at it. One of these days...I'll be out there with you...when I get up the nerve.

Kim,

To have finished 80 miles of this grueling race (in less than ideal conditions) is a victory in my opinion.

Take care,
Tammy

80 miles is awesome Kim, keep your head up and be proud of 80 miles. Mere mortals get dizzy with mileage numbers that high.

I DNF'd at McNaughton Park last year so I know it is disappointing to not meet your goal, but none of these 100 milers have a guarantee to finish and that is what makes them interesting and challenging.

You rock, I'm proud to know you. I wanted to give you a hug at Covered Bridge you looked so bummed out. :-(

I have NEVER seen anyone as fierce and determined as you were coming thru my aid station at 75 miles. Ever. You are an inspiration.

Bob said...

Great job Kim . . . you looked strong and solid out there. I can't even comprehend 80 miles! Maybe some day . . . I'm planning to do the Mohican 50 miler in 2010, so look forward to joining you on some training runs down there (Loudonville is my old stomping ground)!

Jim said...

Ok making it 80 out of 100 and having to stop sucks big time and I can see how you might be discouraged but as someone who hasn't done over a 50k I kind of think that 80 is a big deal. Just wanted you to know that you have inspired me for 3 years since I found trails and tribulations, and you continue to inspire me. I look forward to the reading the race report.

I am also impressed with your effort! 80 miles is at this point totally beyond my comprehension.

I was volunteering at Pine Lane and saw you come through. You are an amazing runner. Congrats to you for all the hard work you put into that race!!
