I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain—and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light.
|The view of the start and the same view at the finish.|
|All smiles at packet pickup.|
|The ascent is a tad on the technical side. (photo I took during the DWG 50K in Oct.)|
|And here is a small portion of the descent looking up. Yea one mistake and your done.|
|Rolling into Petroleum Center Aid Station mile 14.|
|Coming back into AS #2, late afternoon with darkness looming.|
|Pacer time! 62 miles down only 38.8 left!|
|Mile 93..so close to being done but another 2.5 hrs to go ..ugh.|
|Buckle in hand, sharing a laugh with RD Tom Jennings. And yes those poles are holding me up.|
|When can I do it again!!|
|The energy was in the air. This will be fun!|
|Dylan and Paul before lift off. Dylan would later go on to take 2nd place and almost win the damn thing.|
|Jes in obvious pain at the start and your's truly 5 minutes before takeoff.|
|A runner smartly using poles for the second climb.|
|The Pine Creek Gorge. Appreciate the gift and don't take it for granted.|
