Note: Sweet Baboo's race report is up.
Seen at the Phoenix airport.
I hope this doesn't offend anyone out there, but every time I find myself in Phoenix there is always a point where I look around and think, "what. I'm here again?"
You see, ultra runners are not hotel people, for the most part. They are camping people. And so are their crew.
The trophy table. Where you can finger an actual finisher's buckle.
Buckles are the big thing in ultra running. Everyone wants a buckle. you can wear a buckle. It's serious street cred to have one. If one encounters another ultra runner, sometimes their eyes dart to see if you're sporting one.
The Dead Last award.
One of the few races where you can get your feet taped. This helps prevent blisters.
..and home, the next day, working on his race report
