Day 41 Splits
It rained today, and still the best turnout so far to come and support the 505050. James did another great job in some tough conditions.
Yesterday I praised his crew, today the praise is for his supporters. Not just Wisconsin, but all 40 other states. Those of you who have donated, commented, and run and biked by his side got him through some tough days. Even the critics fueled James and made him hungrier for a time.
The only think stopping James now is illness or contact/crash injury. His fatigue has bottomed out, his fitness is sufficient to finish the next 9 days, his support is better than ever, and his attitude is off-the-charts positive. James is not immortal (his quads might be) but it will take an outside influence to stop him now.
Great quote from James last night as we texted. He was really touched by the local support and said:
"My life has changed...Forever"
