Travis just passed the 15 mile mark looking good with a smile.

Saw Travis at mile 27ish, and he was looking strong. Now with Liane at mile 30. She is still trucking and in great spirits.

Sorry about that everyone. I do know Travis finished really well, just don't know the time. Hopefully he chimes in, but he did look good and strong.
Liane finished in 11hrs 39min, while
fighting a hurt ankle. She was tough the whole way...

Awesome jobs by both.

Congrats Liane and thanks for the support today! Great seeing you out there and lifting the spirits. Phil, Sean and Laurel also came in really huge for me.

I came in under 11 and was proud of my effort. Had an injury that set back my training and was planning to quit between 27-38. Turns out that triathlon fitness carries over and you can keep moving slowly. Albit real SSSssssllllllooooooowwwwwwwwwly. I recommend giving a trail marathon, 50k or 50-miler a shot sometime. It's a fantastic crowd and tons of support from both the athletes and the fans and volunteers. I probably won't write a race report but would be happy to answer questions if anyone is thinking of giving one a shot. If your a faster runner, Andy Blatecky is the beast to ask.

By the way, the winner crossed in something like 5:52 with an avg. pace of 7:02! How crazy is that!?

Damn Dave that's why I didn't see you out there. Cause you were a freaken blur when you passed throught the aid stations.

Way to finish what you started, Travis!

50 milers are tough. 100 milers are just mind boggling. Don't know how Jen and the rest of the crazies do it.

Also, JFK is a good first time 50 but there's now another well-organized 50 on the same day called the Stone Mill 50 miler closer in to DC - highly recommended if you can't get in to JFK OR don't agree with the JFK race director's "ethics" ;)

Nice job all!
Andy
