In the dark of the night the members of the Rosie Ruiz Fan Club sped through intermittent downpours, descending on the Nordic Inn in the small ski town of Lincoln, New Hampshire.  Some of us have known each other for years, others just met as we climbed aboard the vans for the trip to Lincoln.  We came from many professions and many parts of the country.  We share one deep and abiding interest--love of Rosie Ruiz.

If you do not know who Rosie Ruiz is, this article will give you the important details.  To many she is just a memory, a negative exemplar, a punchline.  To us, she is inspiration.

Today dawned grey and rainy, but that will not deter us from covering the 200+ miles from Cannon Mountain, New Hampshire to Hampton Beach, New Hampshire any way we can.  Like Rosie, we are all runners.  So most of those 200 miles will be on foot.

Check back to this blog over the next two days to track our progress.



These vans will be our rolling homes for the next 2 days.  If the rain stops soon we are going to pimp these rides something wicked.  Check back for pictures of what they look like with their race faces on.

The day is finally here! In just a few hours the race will start and nothing will stop us until we reach the beach.

But before we begin I would like to say a great big thanks to our invincible team captain Erika!
