Some of you may remember Frank Bott from when he worked at The Daily Herald. He was a member of the photo staff when I started there in 2004. Anyway, since he left Utah he has become quite the long distance runner and this weekend he competed in the Pony Express 100 which is an ultra-marathon run in the west desert. Basically, Frank was trying to run 100 miles along a course that would take him from a little campground near Faust, out to Fish Springs and then back to Simpson Springs. I was there, along with another friend of his, as his support crew. He made it 60 miles before we had to call it quits one mile past Fish Springs. He had been on the road for 15 hours at that point. This photo is from when he was 49 miles into the race. He walked his dog for about 100 yards as the sun was setting. He was exhausted at this point and this seemed to cheer him up.
As you can probably imagine, he drank a lot of fluids while we were out there.
