So the enormity of what these two women did for me on Saturday is just finally sinking in. Erica (center) paced me from mile 54.5 to mile 75 and Maddy (right) paced me from 75 to 100.  Erica had never met me (online or in real life) yet she jumped right in and kept me going for 6 hours.  Maddy, whom I have long admired as a runner, heard I needed help and drove over at the drop of a hat to shepherd me through the final stages...I cannot possibly do either of you justice with words (as my eyes start to well up). Thank you!

  • lydiahintzeThat's so awesome. How very fortunate for you. I agree with @mamainheels, you will definitely pay it forward. That's the type of guy you are.
  • schine_onRad!
  • ericaguthausYes yes yes! Community at it's absolute best! And ditto on @lydiahintze and @mamainheels-it was simply your turn to be shepherded. You do that for others all the time and will continue to do so again and again!👊
