what was your G2G? I recall your ~2008 or 2010 times were insane.
James I remember going back and forth with you in 2008 and maybe another time, both dealing with flats, running out of tubes. Super cool race. One of the coolest.

i remember that like it was yesterday... it was 2008 when i met you hiking our bikes up west horsethief. I was totally blown.. and so were you and you were laughing your ass off and telling me about how the next day you and cyril were going to do a 5 hour run on the backbone trail. i thought you were fucking insane!! VQ 2008 was my first ultra endurance event and thinking about it now about how you were laughing when you were totally cracked probably got embedded in my brain because that's exactly how I deal with things when things go sideways and I'm don't think I can ride/run another step!!

i raced again in 2010 and was in 5th place overall heading up santiago peak when i tore a sidewall. damn specialized tires. not sure where i finished. from the race:
blackstar (gate 2 gage): 44:30

i wonder what i could do now!?!

perspective changes with familiarity, eh?
Fear is displaced by humor and calm expectation of Mr. Murphy's ambush attempts.
