        That’s a shame. I could probably donate a couple of hours of moderation next time. Drop me an e-mail if that could be of interest: jeanphilmartin “at” gmail “dot” com

    Bryon, same pity from here on lack of full commentary with the participation of irunfar’s community.

    Now I have got an idea. What if we post our comments in this comment thread?

    Now we are having two race now: Jim vs Jim’s bision and the whole of runners against the course. Will these two stay separate until the end? Surely it is fun to watch!

    Who’s with me?

    this is just like making a march madness bracket after all. “nothing is for certain, nothing is for sure, and until we close the curtain… it’s him and I. aquemini.”

    heart goes out for walmsley, who i predicted would win (like everyone else)! heart soars for dudes like Sandes who we should have known would show up so strong. the old school rules two years in a row! 100 miler is 100k plus 2/3rd more of that distance. think about that. i feel like a fool for not doing so.

    keep the madness coming. such a strange sport.
