>“When it is all said and done, the HURT 100 is made up of souls: souls with young dreams, visions of sublime beauty, and the ever-present vigilance of the vulture of uncertainty that makes this kind of adventure and camaraderie so rare and precious in our modern era.”— Matt Stevens, 2009 HURT 100 Participant

  1. >Ha … I'm not certain it's the same one but Matt Stevens is a friend of mine out here. He's a great runner and person — someone that a lot of runners on the island look up to. I'll introduce you two if we see him around the race course.
