Lifetime BLT (big long thing, 26.2 or longer) #100, #36 year to date at the Monster Mash marathon in Dover, Delaware. Cold, rainy, and windy weather that was mostly kept in check but for the back half. My time, disappointing, but I had as much fun as I could. The race director and volunteers were so kind, it benefits Wounded Warrior Project, copious nutrition, water, and electrolyte. Great race, if a little tough this year, and not terribly scenic. I remember the exact spot on the bridge I met Emil Cheng last year. Big congrats to Eliot Ephraim who completed his 50<4. Fun fact: Thomas Garrett, a devout Quaker businessman from Wilmington, OPENLY operated as a stationmaster on the last stop of the Underground Railroad in the slave state of Delaware. Driven nearly bankrupt by a massive fine leveled in federal court he brazenly told then Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger B. Taney that he intended to continue his work, which he did. By 1861 he humbly estimated he had “only helped 2,700”. When he died at the age of 81 he was carried to his final resting place at the Friends Meeting House in Wilmington by a few of the freed black slaves he spent his life and fortune assisting.
