i got ahead of myself posting a day one race report. i have major thanks to give. first to steve kirk who puts the 3 days of syllamo race on. awesome job man, you should be proud of the race, because it's an ass kicker for real! thanks for letting me and nuun share in this wonderful event. if it's any indication i am planning on coming back next year. i have some unfinished business to take care of. i hate adding to my redemption list (it now includes 4 events). if you are an ultra runner and it sounds like too much too early come on out and use it as a great weekend "training camp". the ozark singletrack will blow your mind. it blew mine.
special thanks to ty's personal sponsors the ricks (owners of the jackson hole ripley's believe it or not - go check it out!). kevin and corena you guys are amazing. your generosity was limitless. i'm lucky to have met you. on that note also thanks to ashley and josh nordell and the entire arkansas ultra scene who made it such a great 3 days of running.
most of all i think i have to thank ty draney for the invite and all that you did for me at the race. it didn't end up the way we planned, but it's just the start to many more adventures buddy!
