The End.
19-Feb-2016 09:15:20 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

Of 250k I ran 125 through rivers, jungles, mountainsides, valleys, tea plantations, tunnels, and third world villages. On the third day I agreed to run with Walter, on day three; between checkpoints one and two I went down hard while running downhill so 160 lbs of me, 22 lbs on my back all went tumbling down and my right knee was what broke the fall. I got to checkpoint two and seemed fine as the doctors wrapped me up and allowed me to continue, but after checkpoint three it was very obvious that something was wrong. Anyway long story short on the morning of day 4 Dr. Nolan made the call that I could not continue, Ive suffered my very first injury that will keep me from running for at least two weeks. Im pretty upset about it but theres always another race. Ive blogged previously about this and asked my girls (Jessica and Isabella) to reach out , hope you guys are ok. Ill be home monday

Stage 4
17-Feb-2016 03:39:39 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

Absolutely gutted. So… I went out hard yesterday with Walter, between checkpoints one and 2 I bit the dust hard, running hard downhill with 20 lbs on my back, I hit a rock like a sledgehammer with my right knee, I made it through yesterdays leg of the race, this morning the doctor looked at my knee and told me I couldn’t continue, so here we are, lesson learned. Ive run 125k in 3 days through jungles, rivers, valleys, temples, tunnels, train tracks, and even conquered several mountainsides. I am out of this race… Theres always another race, right now however I am thinking of my girls, Jessica, Isabella and Sarah! Id like to hear from you guys

Stage 2
15-Feb-2016 03:10:11 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

What a day!

In the past two days ive seen rivers, valleys, crossed over mountains and hills the likes of which ive never seen. Ive been playing it rather safe for the past two days, Walters pushing me to do what he knows im capable of, but im terrified of not completing so well see how tomorrow goes! While I miss home very much, I am on the adventure of a lifetime! More tomorrow, and all my love to those whove helped make this possible, Mom, Dad, Ms Joann, Jessica, and everyone else!
