What I don't get is why Brian's pacers didn't just wait another 10-15 minutes to see if he collected himself. He had the time to spare. In fact, if he would be happy with second place he could have sat there for about an hour.

I don't know, Scott. It sounds to be like somebody goofed. One thing for sure - we'll be talking about this one for years to come.

Graham Cooper deserves a spot with the elites. But I suspect this is only the beginning of what we'll see from Brian Morrison.

Thanks for covering, Scott.

Great recap! I was following it on WS100.com also and could just tell from the times that heat was really hurting the runners. Still, awesome job to anyone that tackles events like this.

wow, i was sporatically checked out the times at ws100.com over the weekend and i noticed that brian morrison's name was taken off the 'unofficial finisher list' and appeared on the dropped list. but i didnt understand why or heard any stories about the race....

but it's still an amazing feat to complete 100 miles (forget the .2 miles).... and if he can be at the top with the heat and wet trails, he can try again next year. he's still a young pup ;) and now he knows what he's going to face

I'm with you - anyone able to finish States (particularly in these conditions) is a winner in my book.

Be sure to click through on the Duluth story to read more. There are some quotes from Scott Jurek and Graham Cooper in there that really capture the feeling well. It sounds like Brian just ran his heart out and came up just a few yards short. Jurek has tons of experience - I'm sure he wouldn't have helped unless it was clear he needed it.

An epic performance from Brian, nonetheless. I hope he's recovering well.

Wow! I didn't realize his pacers helped him out. Regardless, I have the upmost respect for anyone wanting to take on the Western States challenge.

Thanks for the sharing.
