Voluntering: Speedgoat 2014

I was thrilled to be able to volunteer at the Speedgoat 50k tunnel aid station again this year.  I saw many many familiar faces out there.  I am inspired by every single person who ran.  This is such an amazingly difficult course.  I can't even fathom how tough it must be.  Of course, I'm thinking about signing up next year. 

 Larry's Hole volunteers heading down to their aid station.
 Kurtis, my accomplice who everyone was shocked to find out is my teenage son! (No, I wasn't a teen when he was born!)

 Wasatch Mountain Wranglers, the Williams brothers, Aaron and Matt.

 Hmmm, Closed!  Danger!  RUN THIS WAY!

 My son, who had fun and did a great job helping at the aid station. 

 Here comes Sage Canaday, who was in the lead and kept the lead to finish in 5:12!  Spectacular!

 Paul Hamilton, second place winner.
 Anna Frost, women's winner.
 Hal Koerner.
 It's fun meeting internet runner friends in the flesh.  Neil Galvez speeding along.

 Bob.  I don't actually know Bob's last name, but he's at pretty much every local race I go to.  Good job, Bob!

 Kurtis in his stunna shades!

 Welcome to the tunnel aid station!

 Ellie Greenwood!  I was so excited!

 One of the volunteers brought whiskey.  There were a surprising about of takers!
 Bob, coming through the tunnel.

 Ultra beer for an Ultra race!  Coincidence?
 Neil, ready to finish the race!

 Local speedster and Wasatch Mountain Wrangler, Leslie Howlett.

 Missy bringing food to the volunteers.  Good thing I brought my chicken and hummus!

 Come to think of it, I only know this guy by his Instagram name, @itsrunnable! 
 Another Wasatch Mountain Wrangler, Stephen Jones, enjoying the whiskey!

 Kenzie Barlow: Wasatch Mountain Wrangler, awesome trail runner, total inspiration!  Look at that beautiful smile!
 Ernie, one of the volunteers, and a local runner who goes by the name of Turd'l. 
I saw many more familiar faces, but didn't have time to photograph them all.  Great job out there runners!  You are an inspiration!
