"Call Andy Jones, we've got a leaner"

Untitled from Lynn Hesseltine on Vimeo.

Here is a video of Dan Williams finishing AC 100 two weeks ago. Suzanna Bon paced him. Dan is an amazing runner and just a great guy. Dan and Suzanna are two of my most special friends. Dan struggled this year at AC despite getting in some great training. His back started doing "the lean thing", and it was quite a struggle trying to run like that. I am so proud of him for a job well done. Many people would have thrown in the towel, but not Dan. He kept his head high and finished with a smile on his face. He is a true ultra runner. A little stubborn, and a lot tough.

Thanks Lynn Hesseltine for the video of Dan's emotional finish.

Oh no-- I've been described at "a lot stubborn"-- what does this mean for my ultra-running future?

I'm pretty excited about your Costal Challenge trip, by the way, and I'm not even going! I love Costa Rica and that race sounds amazing.

Well, Victoria, all I can say is that you are doomed! How is your foot? I hope that you are taking it easy and that you will heal fast.
