All was going well until mile 9, then my stomach started churning and cramping. What is wrong? Am I dehydrated? Are my electrolytes depleted?  Is it just a stomach bug that’s going around? ~ Dennis Herzog

 

Well, we don’t know yet.  Could be one or all of them.  All we do know is that this stomach issue slowed him down a bit. At one point they had to drive into town and that cost him an hour.

The last 7 miles of every day his feet are done! They’ve taken a pounding the last few days. He is continuing with massage therapy at the end of every day, ice bathing his feet and a nice hot epsom salt bath before he sleeps.

My analysis is that Dennis is feeling the last twelve days for sure, but he knows he is far too close to stop now.  No matter how rough the day is or how discourage he might get, I have no doubt he will finish this race.  It isn’t an option for him to quit after day 12.  He has to finish now!

How can you help be a part of this amazing documentary?

    On the way home from LA, my family and I drove up the 62 in hopes of seeing Dennis. His stopping point at North Indian Canyon Road specifically stuck out to us as it was abbreviated as North Indian Cyn Road and at first glance my wife and I said, “what’s CYN? Then the aha moment… oh, cyn = canyon! Lol! Anyhow, This is where the road becomes takes a drastic turn, literally and treacherously! Driving up there’s an evident grade however the curves with lack of ‘shoulder’ and then drop off or face rock is what was outstanding to us. I kept thinking if he had other parts where vehicles where close earlier on his run, this for sure would be even more so with drivers being kind and observant due to the tight quarters! We stopped on the outsides of Joshua Tree and u-turned back to the I -10. This being our 2nd time down, I could better appreciate the terrain and downward grade Dennis must have used a tremendous amount of output to keep in control not only from not going in a rolling out of control frenzy run, but also the wind he must have caught from cars zooming by and him catching that drift without a doubt ‘shoving’ him forward! I literally could let go of the gas and stay 50 -60 mph and have to use brakes to slow while hugging the curves on the SUV we were driving. We prayed for the path and the treasure on the other side of the winding twists and turns was a majestic Lord of the Rings-esque mountain that he would greet Dennis with its unusual snow caps and storm clouds from a menacing storm that hit on the other side of where Dennis ran on day 12! May Father continue to have grace and favor on Dennis as he finishes this final stretch!
