    And another year is in the books. If you haven't seen them already, the results are posted on Ultrasignup. Inevitably, a few bibs get missed at the finish, so if you don't see your name on there, let us know and we'll get it fixed. I mean, you didn't do all that work for nothing! As usual, Mother Nature had a few tricks up her sleeve again this year. Congrats to all of you who were able to soldier through, especially you 100 milers on Friday afternoon. And a huge thank you is in order for our volunteers, who also soldiered through the storms. It's not an easy job, they just make it look easy. THANK YOU!!!

    This is the final creek crossing update of the week. In a nutshell, they’re all flowing! That’s what 5+ inches of rain in less than a week will do. They’re not deep or fast, they’re actually just about perfect for getting the full Black Hills 100 experience. Even Porter, who is all of 2 feet tall and 40 pounds, can get across them without the ropes.

    Porter and Buster the trail hounds scoped out the creek crossings today. Despite the fact that we’ve gotten 3-5 inches of rain the past few days, the status of the crossings is the same as before: the first one has water but the others are still dry. Regardless, all of the crossings are roped. More rain is on the way tonight and the rest of this week, so you’re probably gonna get wet no matter what.
     
    Porter and Buster look forward to seeing you at packet pickup (especially if you happen to have bacon). Oh, Chris and Ryan look forward to seeing you, too (especially if you happen to have beer).

    It's that magical time of year when we start begging, borrowing and stealing to round up some volunteers. We are looking pretty solid for aid station volunteers right now, but we could always use some extra help during busy shifts. If filling water bottles and duct taping blisters isn't your idea of a good time, we could also use help at packet pickup on Thursday and Friday or at the finish line on Saturday. The race is June 22-23 this year. If you're around and looking to do something for the betterment of society, drop us a line at: blackhillsultra@gmail.com.
     
    One specific task that we have not yet found any suckers....er, uh... volunteers for is the role of course sweeper. These are the intrepid souls who tag along with the very last runner on Saturday and make sure we know who is at the back of pack and where they are. Not only do you get the pleasure of volunteering and helping fellow runners, but you also get some miles in (mostly hiking, but maybe some running too). Last year we split the course into fourths, but due to course logistics (i.e, transporting the sweepers into and out of aid stations), I'm thinking thirds might work better this year. The sections would be: Silver City to Nemo (14ish miles), Nemo to Elk Creek (19ish miles) and Elk Creek to Sturgis (18ish miles). If you're interested, let us know!
     
    As you all well know, volunteers are the only way this beast gets tamed every year. Thank you to everyone who has already signed up to help!

    Wow, you guys are eager about sweeping! Didn't expect that much response, nor did I expect anyone to offer to sweep the whole damn thing in one shot and totally solve our logistics issues (thanks, Jason!). I love it when a plan comes together (even if it wasn't my plan). So sweeping is taken care of, but we've got all kinds of other fun(?) stuff to be done if anyone is interested!

    I would like to volunteer and could help with Thursday packet pick up and/or finish line if you tell us more details on the finish line help. I assume packet pick up would be the hours on the website. My primary super power is organization if there's a task that needs it.

    Bob never ran any of the distances at Black Hills, but we did have the pleasure of meeting him and talking with him a couple of times at the Bighorn trail races. He was a legend in western Montana. For those who don't know the story, Bob was a logger who didn't start running until he retired at the age of 61. He ran the Bighorn and Le Grizz 50 milers well into his 80s. If you have the time, look up a documentary about Bob called "The Hard Way" (www.thehardwaydocumentary.com). Rest in peace, Bob!

    Race day is drawing close. In a mere month plus change, you’ll find yourself trudging up a hill, hands pressed against your salt-crusted thighs, heart pounding in your chest, calves quivering in protest, and you’ll look up at the sun-drenched sky, sweat stinging your eyes, and see the vultures circling overhead. And, just maybe, somewhere deep within the recesses of your heat-addled brain, you’ll hear the voice of Josey Wales whisper in your ear. And he will say, “Buzzards gotta eat too.”
