Oh wow…hot…that sounds pretty wonderful! (it’s been cold, windy n dreary over here in the UK the last 2 weeks…pretty chilly for a CA guy, and rain EVERY FREAKING DAY. I know…surprise surprise surprise…rain in the UK…who would’a thought.
You’re out on the course as I type Fatty…DON’T HURT YOURSELF! Survive the RUN! Live to RIDE!
40K Elden 04:33:48; Lisa 04:32:45. I think Elden told Lisa to go on, but she has remained ~30-60 sec ahead sinve the 35K split – remaining within sight, but far enough ahead so she does not have to respond to any insistent orders to go on.
You got a standing ovation from my desk. I am proud of you all…MAJOR Congrats!!!
BTW-Thanks to all of the field correspondents for posting updates on the torture, oops, I mean progress. Great play by play.
You are a big ball of fatty awesomeness!!!
Good luck and enjoy

Way to go Elden, truly a fatastic effort!!! I do hope when you return home you remember to build that pedestal for Lisa a little higher than it presently is.
Lisa, thank you for bringing the big(?) man in. I think we would all love to hear your report of what it took to keep Elden going. We know he has a lot of personal determination, but those that run also know how brutal a marathon is on the psyche.
And thank you to everyone for putting up the splits. Made me feel like I was there watching.
