Mississippi River

At 6:06 PM EDT, Rick reached a big milestone: after 2,041 miles and over 194 hours, Rick is at the Mississippi River – a great accomplishment.  The good news, according to crew member George Metzler, is that “…Rick is cleared to continue the race.”

But the bad news is, as the saying goes, “… the real race has just begun.”  This is probably as true for those looking to be an official finisher as it is for the front runners.  At this point, Rick’s average pace is 10.5 MPH … just slightly above the 10.43 MPH pace he’ll need to hold to make it to Annapolis as an official finisher.

On behalf of Rick and the crew, thanks for all the encouraging comments… the crew is reading them to Rick as they trickle in, and it’s really helping him get down the road!
