Mile 101. Finished at 5:50. Not many words can describe my emotional mindset right now. What an accomplishment, but we must force ourselves to remember the true... cause of the event. Remember those who are in situations worse than ours. Hopefully we can go out of our way to do good for others. I cannot thank everyone enough for all of your hard work and encouragement. I would especially like to thank Coaches Krall and Deal for their help and advice throughout my running career. Also Josh Storandt, Carol Neill, and Cheryl Dutton at Altra for the work they put in. Thank you to Erin Waldhart at WAFER and Shelly Fortner at the Hunger Task Force. Huge thanks to Joe McDaniel in the Norwalk area for all of his hard work with setting up donation buckets. An infinite thank you to my family for all of their help and support and for putting up with me these past few weeks. Finally, thank you to all news reporters and my fan clubs in Onalaska, West Salem, Sparta, Norwalk, Kendall, Elroy, and Reedsburg. Thanks to the Mulhollands for a great dinner Monday night! For those of you not mentioned, you are not forgotten! Thank you to the businesses that let me set up donation buckets and all donors. What a humbling experience and all supporters were incredibly inspiring for me! A bit of advice, though: if you want to keep your sanity, NEVER run 101 miles in 2 days! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and hopefully others are inspired to make a difference!
Mile 47 and Kyle Lang takes a well-deserved rest.
He reports: Mile 47! Done for the day. Every part of my legs hurt. About as bad as I was expecting. Words can...not describe the pain, and few people can relate. But I am confident that I will finish tomorrow. Thanks for the support!
We'll be following Kyle for the second day of his 101 mile run to abolish hunger tomorrow. You can help support his efforts with a donation to his PayPal account at http://bit.ly/1rpVSG5 or drop off donations at our West Salem branch office.
Kyle is running for Hunger Task Force of La Crosse and WAFER Food Pantry
Kyle says: Mile 39. Long 5 miles, but not too painful. A good deal ahead of schedule. Almost done for the day!
