>Just wanted to point out some super awes results I almost overlooked from the weekend. At the North Face Endurance Challenge 50 Mile in DC Ben Nephew/Leigh Schmidt/Michael Wardian went 1, 2, 3. All of 7 seconds separated Ben and Leigh, who have been battling all spring and summer in their own MA trail series races (Ben won that little humpty dumpty 11 mile race I did up yonder) and then our own local ultra fav M. Dubs was just under 4 minutes behind. Must have been a heck of a race!
