I Want to Run a Marathon

My daughter's SO completed his 100 mile run...not sure of his time, but he ran 100 miles. This is mind-boggling to me still.

There was damage, though - they're 493 miles away and their car will not start.
that's barely 5 runs away for him, tho.
[@663519,Mamapolo2016] maybe it's time to take a ride to go get them?

[@887863,bourbon] I've offered. Waiting for a reply, but he was racing and she was watching and worrying for the better part of a day. I suspect they are sleeping.
[@663519,Mamapolo2016] ah. well that's probably best.
The big goal is to do it in 24 hours. Best wishes for his recovery.

[@64773,Alfred22] He finished in under 20.
[@663519,Mamapolo2016] That's amazingly fast. He must be a great runner.

[@64773,Alfred22] I just learned 20 was a typo in a text - under 22.

He is an amazing story - he was rock climbing in the Grand Tetons a couple of years ago and a piton slipped - when he was done falling and sliding and dangling and banging against rocks, he'd fallen about 150 feet. By great fortune a lifeline helicopter was already arriving at the mountains to carry out a woman climber who'd had a fatal fall, and that saved our young man from bleeding to death. He almost lost an eye, had multiple broken bones and lost teeth - they rebuilt his face with, I think, 25 titanium plates...he's a tough hombre.

How stressful for all of you! Hopefully it's an easy fix for them. 🤗
