Tuna 200

Wounded Warrior Project charityThe Tuna Run is a race from Raleigh to the east coast.  The 200 mile route is for a team of 16, and yes, I ran it as a single person team.  I only made it 105 miles after traversing a lot of the course that was washed out, but we raised over $10,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project.

Crewed for Ashby

That Rooster playing the BanjoAshby and I met through a mutual running friend who knew we were each planning to run the 203 mile Tuna Run.  I was on Ashby’s crew and at one dark point we were both certain we saw a 20 foot rooster playing a banjo; and are fairly sure it was a hallucination.  Ashby finished by setting a new course record for individual finishes.
