Javelina Jundred 100 Mile Trail Race - Bob Gentile Style

As I continue to upload the 7 or so videos that will make up the final JJ100 video race report, I thought I would share another video that features Bob Gentile.  For those of you that do not know Bob (of the infamous blogmyruns.com), he is quite the character.  I have the distinct pleasure of becoming fairly close friends with him over the past few years, and have personally witnessed some of his attempts at the 100-mile distance.  He always seems to inject the perfect amount of humor into these ultra distance races.

Bob brought it home at JJ100, finishing in 28:35:38, despite suffering thought some painful blisters.  So, congratulations Bob on your fantastic finish.  Everyone else - enjoy the video below of Bob's post-race visit to the medic tent (DON'T MISS THE LAST 15 SECONDS !! ).

  1. There is no way I am clicking play. I saw those babies on your camera and do not want to see them any larger. ;>)

  2. I did click play, and there should be warnings about the content. I have never seen someone with such mangled feet.

  3. I don't think I need to see blisters, and what I'm guessing is their draining. Gross.

  4. Through 1:45 I was about to say - man up, I've had worse. But the toe blister took the cake. Good one.

  9. I left the moment they pulled off the sock. I know what's on that video Tony! I'm eating lunch soon, if lunch is going to happen I have to avoid this video. I can barely tolerate my own blisters.

  11. Wow. That's naughty! I'll never complain about blisters again!!

    We will have to get a race plan together for next year so that we can do a fun 100 together. I've already decided that the only triathlon I am doing is Ironman Arizona - and that's only because I am already signed up!
