The deed is done, and I have a village to thank.

From 11:57 AM yesterday until 7:14 AM today, I ran across the state of Vermont using the current route of the 90-mile Cross Vermont Trail. Along the way I was met by many amazing friends who ran miles alongside me, supported me with food and drink, or encouraged my progress. I was hoping this run would be a familial experience and it exceeded my wildest expectations.

More words later. Suunto Movescount crashed during sync so the data might be a few days from getting retrieved from my watch; in the meantime, enjoy the Garmin InReach map.

Robert had a public inReach track during the run.
