blood, sweat and...dirt

these are some gaunt dudes.

smiles and salty shirts. 50 miles from robinson flat to the rucky chucky river crossing on the states course with m4. beautiful day with lots of heat, downhills and this served as the last tune up for the journey. we even started at robinson at the time when we expected to be through there so we could simulate the course "in the moment". bugs, sun exposure. temperature fluctuations at the bottom of the canyons...this run had it all except the crews and well stocked aid stations. ajw was awesome with the guidance and sharing of his experiences in his 5 years of racing here. he's been 8th, 2nd, 6th and 4th his last four times out so not only does he know how to race this, he knows how to race it well.

taper time.
