I am going to out myself. That is me holding Meb's hand.
I was about ready to drop out around the 4th Mile and Meb and Joan came out of nowhere and Meb turned to me and said, "Keep it up man, your doing great" He reached out shook my hand and asked my name. After telling him he said "come with us". I had no choice obviously, how could I turn him down. We chatted a little bit, amazing how much energy I found after that. They started to pull away a one point and a 30m gap grew and Meb looked back at me with this look like "Get back up here", so I put my head down and got back up. Approaching the finish he said "We are finishing together" and grabbed my hand and raised it. I never run well at Falmouth but this was easily one of my favorite races. Meb is just unbelievably, incredibly nice. So surreal!
Also, Joan is unreal. Also super nice, but I don't know how she still races so hard (with all due respect!), absolute machine!
