Here’s a couple of e-mails received lately. One is thanking us for the support during the HURT 100 and the other is thanking us for a training run.
Hello to Everyone who helped with H.U.R.T #7
I would like to thank everyone that helped with the H.U.R.T. 7. Each aid station person was so helpful and encouraging. I felt like I had a top ranked NASCAR pit crew getting me in and out of the aid stations. I also learned quite a bit during the run, poor choice in hydration pack – it was to hard for the aid station folks to fill, should have bought gaiters, diced Power Bars and boiled potatoes are the best food on the planet after 20 miles or so, company in the dark is nice even if it is brief, the mud from the trail is impervious to washing – but I have a cool set of brown tied dyed socks and matching singlet now and going downhill for a flatlander is much easier than uphill. Following the run I logged onto the Ultrarunning website and have planned the rest of my 2007 calendar year runs. It would be an honor if I was allowed to participate in your event again in 2008, hopefully wiser and maybe a little faster.
You folks run the best event I have ever participated in. The spirit of Aloha lives within each of you, thanks for all your hard work getting an event like this to completion.

run on Sat. Jan. 27. It was really nice meeting everyone that day and
getting to see some beautiful areas. I came back home on Sunday, Feb.
4, to single digit weather with a wind chill below zero. I’m so glad I
got that run in with all of you!
