The Silver State 508
Anyone who has been following my blog knows that this is the 5th year that my friend and second-favorite riding partner, Tim Marks (Pileated Woodpecker) will be competing in the 508 race.
The 508, this year known as the Silver State 508 due to a venue change, begins on Sunday, Oct. 5th in Reno, NV and covers 510 miles and 20,000 feet of elevation.
Successful completion (the cut off is 48 hours) of this race will earn Tim a place in the 508 Hall of Fame.
I know you will do this, Tim, and I will be following you the whole way! I wish I could be there to see you cross that finish line.
Best of luck and only tailwinds to Tim and all my other friends racing the Silver State 508 this weekend: (George 'Red Eyed Vireo' Vargas, Lori 'Hutton's Vireo' Hoechlin, and Patrice 'Blue Frog' Pellerin).
