2014 Results & Pictures

Wow! What an awesome, epic day!  All week long we were watching the rain forecasts for Saturday (and Sunday), we didn’t pay much attention to Friday!  Be careful what you pray for?  It didn’t rain at all during the entire event!  But it poured all night long Friday, a veritable deluge from about 8PM to 5AM.  By 5:30 it was done, but the water remained.

I’ll let the pictures (and Cody’s video) tell that story, for me the real story was the cheerful, happy, ecstatic, fun-loving, adventurous spirit of the runners and volunteers.  It turned a near-disaster into a joyful day full of laughter.  Thank you all so much.

Congratulations to Jeremy and Stephanie who not only won the men’s and women’s divisions but were probably the two happiest, most cheerful, runners on the course (and they had plenty of competition!).  And second place Chuck was the runner who just wouldn’t quit.  In this race, runners rarely time out, they just decide not to go back OUT THERE.  But Chuck kept going back out, no matter how close he was to the cut-off.  His last lap he came in 50 minutes late, teeth chattering and body shaking with hypothermia… and still smiling!

I loved hearing the stories of PR’s for distance, ranging from 6 miles to 66.

Noel Sweet (EMT extraordinaire) and Cody and Angela and Rebecca were out there all weekend making it happen for you all, as was Lorelei, when she wasn’t getting her own two laps in.  Ted and Sarah got up in the dark to help out Saturday morning.  Other spectators, family, friends and even runners chipped in with all kinds of unsolicited assistance.

Next year’s race will be on a faster, even more scenic, better draining course (with room for more parking- which we will certainly need, our numbers were up 40% from last year, even with the bad weather).  Probably March 21, 2015.

Please email me any pictures or videos you have so I can share them (runalong – at – mac – dot – com)
