The Golden Jackel finishes Furnace Creek

Congratulations to my friend and ultra runner Bill Bradley who finished the Furnace Creek 508 mile bike race last weekend in Death Valley and the Mojave Desert. This 508 mile bicycle race has a reputation as one of the toughest endurance challenges with 35,000 feet of elevation gain and a 48 hour time limit. Bill, who told me that "I am only good at showing up", did an incredible job of not only showing up, but of digging deep and hanging in there for a time of 46:14:32. He finished 35th overall. Great job, Bill!! Way to HAMMER! Now go rest!

I second those congratulations to Bill. I did manage to meet him, about mile 20 of the race we rode together a few minutes on some of the early climbs. What a great effort!
