Roch at Hardrock:
The starting lline.
On Sunday morning Dale Garland, the heart of Hardrock, shared breakfast with all of the runners, volunteers and crews and presented the finishers awards to the 81 “Hardrockers” of 2006. A couple of facts from this year’s race: first 70 year old finisher, John DeWalt, largest field ever, largest number of finishers, five people finished their 5th Hardrock and one joined the small group of 10 time finishers. For full results see www.hardrock100.com. This event is a gem in the Ultrarunning community as far as I am concerned, a highlight of the year and an amazing event to feel a part of.

I am now on my way home in pursuit of finding a car, packing it up and heading back to Denver to meet up with Andrew Skurka so that we can start the Colorado Trail as planned. I need to be in Denver by the 22nd, it is going to be a busy couple of days!
