Key Quotes:

  • “One of my life’s simple philosophies is that I think life is really, really hard. I think that no matter who you are, or what your circumstances are, life tends to throw us lots of curveballs, and lots of trouble.” – Dave Huggins
  • “I think as a runner, as you know, it’s like you train, you train, you train… you get better. And, then once you accomplish some of these things, and take on these difficult tasks, you realize that you can overcome them. You can get through this. You need to persevere.” – Dave Huggins
  • “I think that we’ve done enough legwork, and we’ve proven to enough people that we know what we’re doing. It is a well-organized event. It’s worth your time, money, and energy to participate.” – Dave Huggins
