On Wednesday Raleigh NC was the distination for the "Running Hope Through America". I had the great honor and privelige to hang out with Lisa Smith-Batchen for 21 of her 50 miles for the day. It was neat that Lisa remembered me from the Grand Tetons Races where I helped crew for my friend Frankie, and also paced the 100 mile women's winner. Lisa is running 50 miles in 50 states in 62 days - I have no doubt that she will finish her quest. I am now thinking seriously about doing the GTR 50 miler in September......... watch this space!
