Last Chance Aid Station – Western States Endurance Run 2016 

Good grief, I know, I know – Western States was way back in June! 

Well, life happens, and I figure it’s better late than never. Here are the photos I took while I spent an unforgettable weekend camping at Last Chance.

Super nice Bay Area runner. He wound up finishing 9th overall. I chatted with him a few weeks ago when he came to speak at the Dirtbagger Film Syndicate screening.
The Jester! I’ve been bumping into this guy at a bunch of races this year and hes always killing it!
