Finally, the final standings are posted from the Coastal Challenge. News of our runners was non-existent for Day 4 and 5, but we did not miss anything. None of our group started those days. I do not know the details--maybe they just kicked back and enjoyed the beach. But Kathy, Dee, Derk, and Barbara ran the last day in a respectable 5:44 staying together as a group. I am sure Facebook will be blissfully flooded with pics and reports when they get back on US soil. I've heard that phone usage in Costa Rica--if and when they have a signal--is way expensive. Here's a few more pix of our gang, and then some of the course from Day 6.
Finally, the results. I'm proud of our team. I'm sure they'll have tales to tell for years to come of what no doubt is the hardest thing they've ever taken on. Final results can be found here. The Coastal Challenge website has a lot of details about the race as far as signup, but no current results at all. Maybe they'll post more stuff there later, but I'm not holding my breath. A website called Breathmag has some daily posts and lots of pictures, but mostly about the top three runners.
