Quote of Note

“Finishing the Barkley was not at all what I expected. I didn’t well up. My heart didn’t pound uncontrollably. All the emotion and hoopla had been worn down to nubs. I was sick, cold, and happy to be done.”
—Andrew Thompson, who became only the eighth person in 28 years to finish the Barkley 100-Mile Ultra
