Beaverhead 100K ~ my first DNF

Such an excellent adventure, and lots of fun with Cary and Lori. I made it as far as Gold Stone Pass at mile 46 but missed the cutoff there. Big congrats to Cary for getting the job done. And big thanks to Lori for being such a great Sherpa.

So very happy for my Angel.

For every door that opens another one can be closed.
Rest in peace sweet angel. You mattered. You made a difference. You will be remembered.
