New JMT Speed Record on 08/31/2007 12:12:12 MDT Print View

Glad it's over!!
Having just ten days prior completing the JMT as reconnaissance, last Friday at 4:00 AM, Sue Johnston left Whitney Portal to attempt a new speed record. At midnight on Monday, at 3D20H, she, along with pacer Deborah Askew, found the finish at Happy Isle, eclipsing Kevin Sawchuk's previous record by an hour and five minutes. Learning from her predecessor record holders, Sue's deliberate use of regular sleep and planned crew support complemented her own stamina and drive to permit a strong finish seemingly unhampered by over-fatigue and exhaustion. Visit her blog at runsuerun.blogspot.com for initial comments and subsequent lengthier report. (Her Summit to Isle time was 3D15H32M.)
