Many thanks to all the fine peeps who volunteered for the Buffalo Stampede this year! I was the last one to finish, but all of you waited around for me, and treated me like royalty when I finally crossed the finish line. Special thanks to Gen, the race director, Phil, the race’s sweep bicycle escort, Rich Hanna and all the fine people at CRRM, and Bill Roehr who helped me walk to his car and gave me a ride to my car. Bill also shared a story with me about how he was dead last in a recent Chip X-Country race. His reassuring encouragement meant the world to me. I’d love to see Bill again someday soon. Please give him my email address. Thanks again for hosting the 42nd Annual Buffalo Stampede!
