He did it
60 hours of running, through three nights, on 30min of sleep. (I hope no kids are watching: don't try this at home.)
I am not authorized to pass this on, but I will anyway: Mike says he realized only last night how selfish his endeavor was, and how heavily he was leaning on his friends to help him make it. Unlike Rex (above), I wasn't one of those who trudged through the darkness with him, 10 hours per night, through pouring rain, and so I can't speak for the guys and gals who really helped, but I believe I can say with confidence: no problem, Mike, I know you'd do the same for any of us. Not that I believe that anyone will ever be so stupid to try this again!
