This is the 3rd year that Edward has attempted his own dune challenge on the steep, 450-foot drop dune on the Pierce Stocking Drive of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore! His 2006 time was 9:07 and in 2008, he did it in 8:31. The average person does it in 45 minutes, it would take me a few weeks. Could he break his record? John & Brian were also up for the challenge.
One thing that is nice about the area is that while they are gone, there are pictures to be taken of the surrounding scenery.
The sun was about to set. Would he make it?
Here he comes. He touched the sign at the end at 7 minutes, 39 seconds for a new record! I should also add that he was up early for a 5k in which he received a medal for 2nd place in the 19-24 age group and he ran about 8 miles in the afternoon. I don't know how he does it. Brian & John also made it up a bit later...
