Shad and I got a call from my Mom last night to watch 20/20 on Superhumans. They did a feature on Ultramarathon Man, Dean Karnazes who Shad ran a marathon with in Vermont when Dean did his 50 marathons in 50 days. It was a short but interesting segment and we watched it together. There were a couple other superhumans that were featured that were pretty amazing and a couple others just strange at best.
Shad ran his first full 50-miler a couple weeks ago. It was the day before Mother’s Day and a very busy weekend so we didn’t take the time we should have as a family to note what an amazing feat it really was. Shad did the Wapack 50-miler on a miserable and rainy day. I was glad he had a friend run the second 20 miles with him and another friend run the final eight.
We met Daddy at the end of his “out” leg at North Pack and then met him on his way back at the bottom of Pack. He looked pretty good. I don’t understand the motivation he has to do such a thing but I do appreciate fully that he has it. Good job Daddy, we are so proud of you!
