Congrats to two of my favorite running people, Hansi and Francis, for completing the Boston to Big Sur Challenge this past Sunday. These 2 wonderfully nutty people, along with a couple hundred other crazy people, ran BOTH the Boston marathon in Massachusetts AND the Big Sur marathon in California just 6 days apart. Two tough marathons in less than a week on opposite sides of the country. Francis came all the way from Toronto Canada to do these races.

To make the challenge even more rewarding, Hansi ended up taking 1st place at Big Sur. Francis had respectable finish times in both races as well. Heck, between the two of them, they’ve probably finished more than a hundred marathons in just about every country on the planet. My hat’s off to the both of them!

Read Frans 2010 Boston marathon race report. Lots of pics and vids too.

    Hi Steve,
    I'm just getting around to catching up on blog postings and wanted to say thank you for the company in Carmel. I loved the videos and picures during your Boston marathon and glad you came out of it feeling okay. i didn't realize that you had to do so much extra treatment during your race. Congratulations on a job well done! You earned that medal so wear it proudly!

  3. It was good seeing you too! Hope you had a good trip here in the states.Congrats on completing a challenge that very few people will ever attempt, let alone succeed at!
