After cleaning up and eating some excellent homemade chili at the finish, I had the great pleasure of cheering in my friend Andy who made the trip up with me to run his first race over 50 miles. Andy's parents were also out to crew for him all day, so we had quite the group waiting in anticipation for his headlamp to come charging down the trail at the finish. As it turned out, Andy showed veteran poise and patience on the tough course and cruised in to finish in 20th place. Well done, Mr. Gingrich!
