26 miles in 90+ degree heat, just to go 26 miles with out such high heat, is great. Congradulations to all, more evidence of the "can do" spirit in the Town of Stoughton. In my eyes you are all winners. Mr Coulter you will be an inspiration to the younger people in town, you didn't win but you finished, a great accomplishment.
