Good for him. Hope he keeps living the dream.

I remember the first time I ran the Wall with my WW canoe. I swamped it about halfway down, flipped, and swam the rest. Canoe did Tombstone on its own. Eric is way ahead of me.

My first year I had a long swim (and learned the valuable lesson of why we need float bags) on the same run. I refused to leave my gear until I realized I didn't have the strength to get the boat to shore.

This guy is the bomb. He has also climbed Mt. Everest. Unbelievable.
