Tony Portera and I joined them as they began their journey along with crew members Brendan and Joe. We had a blast running the first 26 miles. I can only imagine the stories that will come out of this.
Today I heard that unfortunately Sam will not be able to complete all of the miles due to injury. Here is what I love the most about this. Despite this being Sam's idea and goal he is 100% committed to helping get Chris to the end. He will still push to run half the daily mileage and Brendan and Joe will be there as well the entire way. They are all in it together. The selflessness of this and other "Ultra Journeys" brings a smile to my face.
