  1. Looks like an emotional finish. You realy flew dude! Congratulations on another 100mile finish.

  2. I wanted to send a note to the HURT Community that SGM Ben Cavazos was selected as the Army Male Athlete of the Year for 2007. Once the board heard about the HURT 100 and the Wounded Warrior Project this must have really made an impact. This is a huge honor for Ben and was due in large part to the HURT Ohana.
