A tribute race to a friend of mine who passed Jan 18 2012 after being diagnosed with leukemia 3 weeks earlier...tragic. He first became a climbing partner of mine, and turns out he was a tremendous endurance athlete. Never pushed me into triathlons....it just rubbed off on me, he was that charismatic. So, I am having a tribute race in his honor named after the totem he was given on his first Furnace Creek 508. It is a reverse triathlon with the distances being mixed in units and representing the ages of his children at his passing. Take a look here: www.theratsnake.com
The site isn't fully operational yet, but gives you an idea of what its all about. Thanks for looking.
