The Finish Line – a Family Celebration
At first, when you commit to an ultra like Knee Knacker you don’t realize that you’re committing to a lifestyle. A lifestyle that has you thinking about every run and every workout in a new way. A lifestyle that deeply impacts your family. You eat more. You sleep earlier. You run at weird hours like 5:00am. And you’re likely cranky if you miss a run. Some ultra runner’s spouses have even commented jokingly on being “a Knee Knacker widow/widower”. It’s photos like these ones of Norman Thibault and Samantha Joy, that really highlight the fact that finishing the Knee Knacker is truly a family celebration. This is why our finish line “Party-in-the-Park” is so brilliant. Whether you ran, cheered, or watched the kids all day, you’ve undoubtedly earned the right to put your feet up, enjoy something tasty from Bridge Brewing and share in some fine grub. …Tom Craik, 6 times Knee Knacker finisher
