Read as Sam shares his feelings and experiences while completing the 50 Marathons in 50 States in 50 Days!
3 down, and today was a fantastic run! Bozeman, MT is absolutely incredible- the people are amazingly warm, the weather was perfect, the town is beautiful, the surroundings spectacular. I started a bit earlier today and still felt pretty sickly with heavy congestion, etc., but after 15 miles or so started to feel a good deal better. Andres spent the morning emailing/calling/etc. while Kirsten and Diane were my crew- no major mishaps today, lots of nutrition and hydration and I felt great. I am realizing more and more that I'd be in big trouble without my wonderful crew!  I finished up on the University track here in town and had to run a few laps there to hit 26.2, ended up doing 26.3 for good measure, and Andres had two local news crews waiting and filming when I ended, so hopefully that will help spread the word! On the sickness front, I had a consult with our trusty team physician in Alexandria, VA, and he prescribed me what I needed. I will soon have my first dose in, so hopefully wellness will come soon. We have a long drive to Portland tonight- 11 hours or so, and then another raceday marathon tomorrow- the Foot Traffic Flat, so that should be fun. Happy 4th of July to everyone, and thank you for all your support!

Hi Sam and company,
I just sat down at the computer at work hoping to see a new entry for today. Great news that you are feeling better and that there were no mishaps. I think of you often, lifting you up in prayer, asking God to give you infuse you with his Spirit and energy; anything beyond what you have ever experienced before. Much love, Kathy S.
P.S. Kirsten, I e-mailed cousin Keith with the info. and website and asked him to forward a message to all of the Dyer cousins; including Jay and Amber. Hopefully you will hear from many, many people who are behind you 100%.
