Just a quick update as today is a travel day back to the East coast. JJ100 was fantastic. It was great to see so many friends in action, and to meet some new ones. Amazing how hot the desert can get in the day, and how cold it can turn at night.
In a few days I will post a more complete race report, which will be mostly a video race report, with video clips taken throughout the race from all parts of the course.
As for time....a nice 26 hour 41 minute finish (give or take a few seconds).
Lots of thanks to my great pacer, Rick Gaston, who made sure I didn't fall asleep at 2 AM in mid-stride (by running 50 yards ahead of me, leaving me all alone in the dark with the desert wildlife - we all know how scared of the dark I am).
Congrats to Bob and Paulette for finishing their first 100-miler !
