I planned to pace a friend at Pinhoti 100 earlier this month. But an unseasonably warm November day wrought havoc on the course, and many racers, including y friend, missed cutoffs. So I hung around and volunteered a bit and swept a couple of sections of the course. Here are a few images.

Dehydrated and out of it. Barely able to walk the .10 of a mile to the aid station where he’l be told his race is over. The 100 mile race is a cruel mistress
