Constructing the Pipeline AS.
It was very nice of Jerry to ride up (some fun on his new dirt/street bike) the very rough Pipeline Road to help construct the AS.
It was a very nice warm day, Friday the 15th, 2009.
Taking some time out for a cold beer and some snacks.
Covering the structure with tarps to either provide shade or shelter from the rain.
The first aid gazebo set up. Inside are two cots and supplies.
Putting up large signs to delineate “50 mile and 50 K”.
11.1 miles to the finish.
Coming into the Pipeline AS.
We were treated to a beautiful sunset on Friday night.
Everything set up, time for a few beers and some dinner.
Corey in the shorts, a crew member waiting on his runners and helping out. They were great! Maybe haveing a conversation over “Molly”?
All chais set up, runner in/out table with umbrella set up and runner drop bags in order.
Waiting on the stars of the show, the runners!
By the time Jason came in and was headed out it was full on cloudy. He is running without a shirt, and still sweating!
Over or should I say straight down “Nate's Nemesis”?
These two thought Molly rocked! Dave D. has all the “good” pictures of the runners with Molly. He was sure to have the runners give her some “Sheep Lovin'” before heading to the finish point.
Things became very busy rapidly.
Dave made things easier for us. Not only is he an EMT but also a Ham Radio Operator. He handled all comunications and runners that were not feeling good. Thanks Dave!
Dylan doing an awesome job logging runners in/out and assisting runners as time alloted. He is also waiting on his brother, Jason.
We heard the famous “Woo Hoo” and knew Jason was coming in!
Who's time are we checking?
A little runner mist spray to cool off.
The runner in the chair was not feeling well. Dave took over and assessed her.
David Coblentz back in.
David Colbelntz on his return.
David out. I don't know if Dave got a shot of “sheep lovin' from David C.
Enjoying a bowl of potatoes with salt, watermelon, water and coke.
Fun was had by all!
Tom Stockton on his way back in.
Bill Geist and another runner on their way back in. I think we were ringing eight cow bells for Bill, right?
This runner asked for a beer before heading out on the last leg of the run. He finished it in about 5 minutes!
Fewer and fewer drop bags left.
