Stage 8 Complete

Posted: March 5, 2011 in Uncategorized

 Stage 8 UPDATE: Just got off the phone with Jenny. She finished 53.4 miles in 13 hours and 4 minutes. She ran up a mountain through a blinding snowstorm where up to 8 inches of snow greeted her. Coming off the mountain she guessed the temperature rose 15 degrees Celcius. She mentioned how wonderful the emails and comments have been and how spiritual the journey has been. Please keep them coming.

The exciting thing is she only has 72 miles to go til the finish. She has completed 430 miles in 7.5 days. The clock will start again at 5:30 AM her time. She plans on running 46 miles on Sunday and 26 miles on Monday to finish the trail.

    Jenny, This is Rick from Tammy’s computer. You continue to amaze me and I know my prayers and everyone else’s prayers have been answered. Your strength and determination have been a blessing to us all. I know you are in pain and extremely tired, but continue on towards your goal. I have been out of town this weekend running up in VA and so many people were amazed at what you were doing. You had such a positive impression on so many and that says nothing of those who are being helped by your efforts. Stay strong my friend. I will continue to pray for your safety until you are back home again. Rick
