Don't get me wrong, that's an insane race, and just getting a buckle is a pretty awesome accomplishment. But, uhh, what?? From the CFE website "This program only requires 6-8 hours per week to COMPETE at Ultra/Ironman distances.)"...
1. He didn't get a buckle at Western States.
2. Placing in the top 25% of North America's most prestigious ultramarathon isn't bad. I wouldn't consider it highly competitive though. I'm also not convinced he was following the same CFE protocol that is advocated now when he trained for that.

The article is several years old now. As far as I know Brian has not finished a 100 since AC100.
