Ed. Note: Today’s blog is written by Rick, a Phoenix regular who crushed the ECSCA 50k this weekend despite having to literally drag another of our tribe members (Ahmad) for a portion of the race. I actually saw (and ducked away from) both of them at the mile 20.5 aid station, as I was waiting on a ride to the finish. That’s a story for another time. Phoenix represented with 22 people in San Francisco this past weekend.
