An interview with Homa and Erin before doing Nasty Grade a few days before the race

The "Denner, even though its not 6am, your camera is still taking me by surprise" picture... (as a side note, this man is 14 months removed from his second bout with chemo, radiation therapy on top of a stem cell transplant and finished the long course with a smile on his face)...

Gurujan "Penalty" Dourson at his finest...

What happens when you leave it all on the course...



The BIG ASS BURRITO at Rudy's in Santa Barbara on the drive home (I am not sure what took longer to recover from - the race or the burrito [and yes, I finished it])...

Helllloooo refresh your caption on that pic. I was sitting in the car with the heat on high... charging the cell was an after-thought. Race morning was frigid!!!

Fun fun fun times. As always.
