    Wow…this was an amazing post, I could feel your stress, soreness and iron will. I hate running but I seriously admire those that do and posts like this make me want to run (but not really).

    I am so happy to have stumbled upon this! Thank you so much for writing this alll out and everything. I don’t know if you’ll ever see this comment :P. I will be doing the 12-24-36 legs of H2C this year. So excited and so nervous. Write ups like this are such a huge help 🙂

        i will! So glad you got the comment 🙂

        I have been reading back through your whole H2C experience this morning… and am soooooo grateful for all you say… nail clippers, how hot you got, how cold you got, food, just everything. It is so awesome that you did this.

        Are you doing it again? Would you do it again? lol

          I’m so glad you are finding it useful! The food I brought worked well for me. I loved the bagel sandwiches with deli meat and cream cheese. The bananas didn’t last in the van.

          No, I probably wouldn’t do it again. But I’d do something similar, or smaller…
