HAHAHAHA We avoid the Hood-to-Coast like a plague. But I've only been in a vehicle trying to get past the runners.

My next-door-neighbor, Linda, always participates. She ran again this year (haven't heard how her team did).

We went to pick huckleberries in the mountians while you dealt with Hood-to-Coast. Ahhhhh solitude. ;)
