Dave And Jorge: Gritty, Focused, And Not Too Serious
for over 15 years. I have finished behind them most of the time but have been in the same zip code some of the time. Javelina , Western States, and Angeles Crest have been the source of those battles and it’s been fun and heartwarming to become their friends. Dave and Jorge, while they come to the sport from different places, are both smart, humble, simple men. They take what they get and they give what they can. They are examples to me and should be examples to us all. Dave, among many other extraordinary accomplishments, finished second to Scott Jurek at Western States in his first 100 miler back in 2004 and Jorge has three Angeles Crest wins on his mantel as well as countless other SoCal course records to his name.
