  1. This is fantastic. It has been an awful spring/summer of rain, injuries, overwork and equipment failures. If I can lose 25 pounds in the next month I can possibly show in the Mt. Biking, and some vestigial skill might get me on the leaderboard in the gym. But otherwise the only likely accomplishment for this former runner-up is going to be in BBQ consumption. But it will be worth the overnight flight. . . .

  2. Ben Moeling, in fine ELLT tradition, living down last Year’s “surprise” finish as fast as he can. Like we believe you…

    • I think Moeling’s full of it. You get lowered expectations for hoops, Ben, but quit shoveling that crap about biking. (Unless you can produce a doctor’s note for injuries like I can.)
