I wanted to meet Catherine for lunch at Bucks in Woodside. By car it is about 14 miles from the house mostly on freeways. So I went to google maps and it found a way by foot. 13.5 miles. Wow, what an adventure. I ran roads, single track trails, bike paths, I crossed streams, ran lots of tough hills and it rained on me most of the way. But I did it and loved it. Longest run in a long time. (Sun 3)

We have just finished Run The World Challenge 3. It took us 68 days 17 hours and 18 minutes. This was a tough one. But we did it and I am so proud of each of you. Like our first two the ending comes fast. I thought we still had more time and in fact I was hoping to get out one more time to get over 300 miles. But I am so excited we have crossed the line. It has been challenging. Early snow in parts of the US and Canada and then very hot temperatures in South Africa. In the country of Palau they had to deal with heavy rains many days. There was heavy smoke in California because of the fires which made it hard to run. We had three holidays during our Challenge as well. We ran in 23 different countries. Some of us ran Ultras and others ran amazing road races. Our youngest on our team was six and our oldest 74. I will review the outstanding performances in our My Best Runs post. I just want to say again, I am proud of our team and congratulations to all of you. It has been a pleasure running with you. Awards as we have done before will be posted tomorrow.

Thank you Bob! It was amazing. So sorry you could not get to 300 but you did so much more - in a way all of our miles started with you, you got people running for the first time, you got people running more and push their boundries. You got people connected and forge friendships and you created a fantastic running community! Thank you! 1/5 8:20 pm
