The Great Wall Of China Marathon - Derya

The events leading up to a challenging Marathon were challenging in themselves, but Derya persevered and kicked butt in both.

Congratulations Vince on completing the 80 day running streak

 

Minor characters in this epic were Cory, Bob, and Rob who completed the 40 day challenge.  Rob was overcome with a wave of good sense and stopped at 40 Days.  It's not clear why Cory stopped posting after 48 days.  And, Bob had to take a sick day after day 48 and continued posting a "broken streak" (well most of the time).

 

Jon P Sean struggled out of the gate, but once he got started, he chipped in 400 miles.

 

Amelia never got started, but she managed to get to 100 miles.
