The world lost an incredible mother, wife, daughter, friend, attorney, underprivileged advocate, and community member suddenly and unexpectedly on October 16, 2013. In honor of my late wife, Holli Wallace, I am training for the Hallucination 100 mile trail run and raising money for the Children's Grief Center of the Great Lakes Bay Region.

I did it!

The real time blogging didn't work out since cell phone reception in Manistee National Forest left something to be desired. I also haven't gotten around to blogging since I've been feeling a bit tired because...

I successfully ran 50 miles on Saturday!

I'll post more details, including photos and video, when I have a little more time. I just wanted to make sure that I gave everyone who has been waiting to hear results gets an update. My final time was 9 hours 30 minutes and 24 seconds. That's well under my goal time! I also placed 28th over all! I don't know the total number of runners since there were still people finishing when we left, but I think it is somewhere around 80 or 90. Thanks to everyone for your support--it helped me get through the tough spots!

Way to go Brian. Great job running 50 miles. That's quite a feat of endurance, and raising money for a great cause at the same time. Glad to see a fellow Sigler Junkie who has some serious fortitude. They should recruit you for the Kracken. That kind of running ability should have a place in the IFL. They did just loose a running back, hmmm.... Sigler? You paying attention to this?

Brian, as someone who has lupus, I appreciate your dedication to this cause. As your son's grammy, caring for him while you ran made for one of the most powerful days of my life. Budgie's too little to be impressed by more than just your love for him, but someday he will know more. Thank you for all you have done.
