I always love the anticipation associated with participating in a new event. The interwebs make it easy to while away the hours viewing photos and videos and reading race reports. Yeah, it’s great to read the official data (maps, GPS, rules, etc), but I like the real-life stories of folks who’ve experienced the event.
Now that the reality has set in that I’ll be riding my inaugural Furnace Creek 508, I spent some time today clicking around and sharing other riders’ experience. I thought I’d share with my friends + fans.

I can’t thank Gary Brustin and Jan Medina enough for supporting me in my Furnace Creek 508 quest. Without their support this wouldn’t be possible. I’m really looking forward to this event. I can’t wait to add my blog and photos to the interwebs for eternity.
