For the first time in over a decade I did not race in the Silver State 508 – “the toughest 48 hours in sport”. This year I was honored for my 10 finishes. I then partnered up with the former race director, Chris Kostman, as race official. It wasn’t all business though. I became the designated driver while Chris took pictures and videos of the racers for social media. It was fun to interact with the racers and crews along the race course. That is something you don’t have the luxury to experience while racing, or at least not to the same degree. I have to say it was very interesting to be on the other side this year.
I am working on a several blog posts where I will highlight a few of my observations of the 2018 event from the perspective of a 10 time finisher. I will also provide REV tips for success in various subjects. Please subscribe to the blog so as not to miss that post and all subsequent posts! For now here are a few images that I hope will motivate and inspire you to take on the challenge of the Silver State 508 in 2019 and beyond.
I save the best for last — I WISH TO THANK ALL MY CREWS over the years for helping me achieve my 10 finishes. I also wish to thank Lori Hoechlin for being an excellent teammate on the tandem and 2X Mixed. Stay tuned for more posts to follow!
