Well, the run is over! John made it the entire 124 miles and completed the most epic adventure of his running career. I (reluctantly) had to call it quits at mile 70 with what I suspect is a stress fracture of my right foot. I am in the process of working with a doctor to figure out what I did to myself.
John has been writing about the run in a three installment post on his blog. Please click on the "Sherpa John" link to the right or just go to http://www.sherpajohn.blogspot.com. John has an uncanny ability to remember a huge amount of details and his posts are incredible.
I have found it hard to hide my disappointment to my friends and family, but I am learning a lot about myself. I will sit down soon and write a full report about what happened, but I just wanted to update everybody who has been reading the blog.
It is hard to express how much gratitude I have for everybody who supported us and who are continuing to do so. Thank you so much.
