Eric "PMBAR Honcho" Wever took this photo at the 2000 24 Hours of Snowshoe.

I was racing on a five person team in my very first 24 hour race. I was pretty stoked to be there and incredibly elated at this moment in time that was captured for posterity because I had just passed John Stamstead. As I passed a couple of people supporting the team (stage left and right) I let them know "I just passed John Stamstead!!" Timmy (on the right having no idea who John Stamstead is) is pointing to Dave White's girlfriend (who also has no idea who John Stamstead is). He was using less than subtle body language to let me know that she is about to expose her breasteses to me as a form of inspiration. I was so deeply absorbed in the moment of passing my (then) hero that I failed to see him pointing at her soon to be bare breasteses. I entirely missed that sweet, sweet moment that is normally reserved for rockstars and free beads, and I'll never get it back. Even as popular as this blog has become and despite the fact that my internet fame has grown to dizzying heights I have yet to receive this form of adulation at its most highest level since.

BTW: I now know that heroes are people who bravely change other people's lives with little regard or want for their own personal safety, general well being, or monetary reward. I reserve that word for those who truly deserve it... like women who selflessly show their breasteses to passing cyclists.

I didn't realize people used to race with a lower lip full of Kodiak.

Interesting PIC. By the looks of it, you are actually losing weight as you get older.

In this pic, it actually looks like you got Guns? And muscles?

You sure thats you?

Rich, I hate to break it to you, but her shirt is actually coming back down in this shot. We missed *full documentation* by about a 1/2 second.
