HURT 100 Photo's from Leon Draxler

Via e-mail from Frank MacMillan

I'm back on the mainland but I wanted to point out to the blog that David Carlsson not only completed 100k at HURT but a week later placed 'first' in the Hilo to Volcano run in case you guys didn't know.  Great work for a guy who a month ago was just trying to get under 3 hours at Honolulu Marathon (and he did).  I'm pretty sure this is the same guy (last name misspelled in Big Dog's results) as I talked to him before the race and he is the only David in the finishers.  He was camping near Akaka Falls and said ran into the New Mexico HURT runners.

I was still sore and could barely stay ahead of the Cowman though it was nice to have a course with only a few banyan roots in the first ½ mile.

You were right Frank - it was me at the Hilo to Volcano ultra, and I don't really know how or why, but I recovered quickly from the HURT run and actually felt great during the entire Volcano run. It was my pleasure getting to talk story with you, however brief it might have been. Congratulations on finishing up on the Big Island with back to back ultras. Best of luck in your future runs, and I hope to cross paths with you again soon.
