We present an update on the MILC Collaboration's light hadron spectrum calculation with two flavors of dynamical, staggered quarks. Results are presented for gauge couplings 5.30, 5.415, 5.50 and 5.60, with a range of quark masses for each value of the coupling. We present extrapolations of mN/mp to the continuum limit for fixed values of mπ/mp including the physical one.
