    hey Brian…I see you are thinking of coming back to CLE in August for the Burning River…if you are not going to run it….then why not take it easy….visit your mom, and then pace me in the #BR100 on the back-half. I am shooting for a sub-24 this year.

    • Brian Burk

      Aug is up in the air….if things look like I’ll be a round, I’ll get in touch.


  • I will be at Yeti 100 as well!
