  1. Thank you so much for sharing Candice. I really enjoyed your narrative style. Although I am working towards it, I am working towards it (much less one of your 200 milers) and have so much respect for you.

    It has got to be a completely different feeling completely on your own. From trying to get those peanut butter sandwiches down to nodding off while running this was an incredible fight until you arrived back at your truck. Loved the newfound energy 82 miles and 26 hours in. As well it would have been a very unique and different feeling arriving back at your truck and not having anyone to share this huge accomplishment with.
