    Looking for a Grand Traverse partner

    So my partner for the Grand Traverse bailed this year, and I'm looking for someone who really wants to suffer with me.

    About me - 32 years old (as of today!) - in decent shape - pretty good at suffering - i've got all the necessary kit (and have stuff i can loan) - interested in finishing and having a good time, not interested in being super competitive or suffering more than necessary.

    Let me know if you wanna go do a 40 mile, 8k race at the end of March?

    Happy Birthday! I don't want to do that personally, but if you might want to try the Gunnison Marketplace on Facebook if you're still looking a week from now or whatever. A bet a CB local would take you up on that...

    Ha, yeah, I figured I would throw something out here first since I've had such a good experience on TGR even with the limited amount of time I've been active here. I'll look around FB and other places in a week or so if I can't find a maggot who really wants to have an awful time with me.

    there is a "Grand traverse athletes forum" fb group where you can probably find someone

    if any mags are thinking of it, tgapp is a solid dude and pretty fast (imo anyway)

    if you really get stuck... I may be able to be persuaded...

    Hahaha thanks man! Hoping to find someone here first, that way, I don't end up with a rando race guy who pees in a catheter running down his leg to save thirty seconds off of his time.

    I'm not fast but I do have good snacks. Not sure why I signed up for this thing in the first place, but here we are.

    There's no shame in coming to your senses and backing out ;-)

    This is something that I've wanted to do for as long as I've known it's existed. I have the time off from work, waiting for my dad to shit or get off the pot about booking a ski trip for himself that I would join on. Perhaps I'll force his hand and say I'm going to the Elks.

    I'm just flinging shit at the wall at this point, but it's worth pondering. I'm 31, in decent shape, would rather finish than try to place high and implode, and I don't talk too much.

    ETA: I also have contacts in CB and Aspen who could provide logistical support(place to organize gear/crash/etc if needed.
