Great report - you almost make me want to give it a go as well until I think how cold it can get up there. Well done though, especially after those health issues.

Congrats again on a great race, even when sick. Seeing you push the pace while leading the field out was very cool. You gave it everything you had on the day and should be very pleased.

I'm in awe that you pulled off that kind of race when you were sick.

My advice: Fire your coach. Well...unless you want to become as "loco" as he is 8) :wink:

Well done David...looking forward to hearing about your next adventure!

Congrats, Strider!

Sucks that you were under the weather, though. Did you ever figure out why it was "only" 38K?

Seriously! He almost made it sound like something I'd want to do. Almost.

Dave, you continue to amaze me! I can't wait to read your report of the 100 miler next year!

Congrats - I'd say that's 'taking challenge on' rather than 'taking on the challenge' - and you kicked frosty butt!
