Something new for 2019

I have a small problem.

Stress fracture :-(
It will be at least the middle of January before I'm able to put any miles on my feet due to this injury. Which means that there won't be any 100k run for me this year at the Hom 100. Yes, I'm bummed about the injury but I think I've found a new way to honor Tony's life and legacy at this years event.

This year we'll be creating teams of participants who will collectively work towards achieving their own 100k (62 miles) distance over the course of 12 hours. Teams can be made up of runners, walkers or cyclists...just no gas-powered or electric vehicles :-)

We'll unofficially start at midnight on February 2 and start collecting miles. We'll break at 8 am to gather up other friends and neighbors (and probably have some donuts) and then continue on until noon. The Davenport's will host a BBQ starting at 1 pm once everything is broken down and cleaned up at the main aid station.

There is still some work to do in preparation but I'm looking forward to seeing how things come together and whether this format will be more inclusive and fun for everyone involved. If you're interested in helping out at the aid station or contributing anything for the event (all food and supplies are donated), please let me know. We love the help!
