[endurance] Broken Foot at OD

Here's a good one. Last year we crewed for Patty Lambert and her grand
old man Trenton, the wonder App, at the Old Dominion 50--in that awful heat.

Somewhere before McCoy's Ford she was on foot, took a bad step, and broke
one of the large metas. The vets at McCoys taped her foot with vetrap
and on she went.

We were at the 1st vet check anxiously awaiting her arrival--she came in
cheerful...oh, by the way I broke my foot. Hunh? Well Kevin helped her
off Trenton who is a true 16H+ and sat her down. Did she want to
pull??--no way!

She not only continued but she finished that gawdawful ride! Now, I
imagine she was popping Advil like some of us chow down M&Ms. But she
did it!

That's guts....
