My buddy J__ just signed up for this race up in NE Pennsylvania scheduled for late July. I'm on board to provide food, snacks, and, in the second 50 miles, pacing assistance. My own one attempt at the 100-mile distance in October 2009 ended with a whimper not long past half-way. Unlike me, J__ has a pretty good ultrarunning background with four JFK 50-mile completions. Here's hoping he finds more success than did I.
