...Also known as: You guys go ahead and run 100 miles. I'll hang out here and drink beer.
JT and I took a road trip to Tahoe City to help crew a buddy who had won a spot in the Western States lottery. Hard to believe anyone would consider running 100 miles to be winning anything, but hey, whatev. I had never crewed/witnessed an entire ultra before, so I was pretty excited to be part of it. Most of crewing, unless you're pacing, involves sitting around at an aid station waiting for your runner to come in so if you ever find yourself in this position take my advice and be sure you're stocked up with plenty of beer, and maybe a book and/or fully charged iPod.
