What a face....you GO Dave. Safe training!!

Kalapu Ulavale

I went and sent him a cotton hurt shirt. Got's to give him a reason to train PJ. He understands.


Heh heh Mr Mango. Sounds like the grateful ones think this boy might be WORTHY.
Ed , we are glad you are headed home! We look forward to seeing you.

Marv Mango

A side arm and an assault rifle, and he is saying please! Ed trains 'em to be polite. Well maybe a HURT Series Trail Shirt. But Dude you gots to EARN the other ones. You wouldn't want it any other way!

cheryl loomis

thanks to you both for all you do for your country....I know a shirt is a given.


I have no no idea where the HURT shirts come from......but think there's a pretty good chance one is headed for Afghanistan.
Aloha Ed.


Your protege seems to have a pretty determined look. I'm putting my money on him for a HURT shirt someday soon! Stay safe Ed (do you know that word?)!

Carol Jaxon

I'm willing to donate $5 toward the shirt and postage to send it to him. I think PJ and John donate so much of their own time and money that I hate to ask them for anything more!

Richard Senelly

Awesome piece, Ed. If we're voting, here's mine: Dave deserves a shirt. Where I am in TX, Ranger Rick (Perry) claims to have run armed, shooting a skinny-straggly coyote without breaking stride. Please invite him to run with you. Meantime, be careful and don't get dizzy. It's likely that 20-mile loops will be a relief when you get back to Tantalus...

Doug Baker

Hi Ed:

Glad to hear you are doing well and still training hard. Thanks for the interesting post!


Hey Ed, I see you signed up for the Peacock!One of my best HURT memories is running in with you to finish the first Peacock. Be safe my friend.....


Wow Ed, those camouflage Crocs really work, I could barely see you in that one photo... :)


Maybe someone has that cool black t-shirt we got in our gift bag last year?

Steve Villiger

Great to hear from you Ed! Was wondering where you were. We were just commenting last week that we hadn't seen you for a while. Look forward to running with you upon your return, and hearing more of your entertaining stories.
--Steve V.


great write-up, Ed! I say give him a shirt, John. Anyone who can run a 10 miler on a 0.26 mile loop in Afghanistan seems like a shoe-in for a sub 30 hour HURT finish to me!
