And if he’d been training I believe it would’ve helped with the saddle sores. Also Tim didn’t put anything on the sores until after one had opened up. I was putting cream on my butt from the minute it felt a little sore. Yes Tim had moved, changed jobs and was working 60 hrs a week. But he made a commitment to be my teammate. I invested time, money and made a mental investment in RAAM. Tim owed it to me let me know if he wasn’t ready to race. It was the moral thing to do. Yes he told me and announced to the crew he would give me $500 towards an entry next year. Hoo rah. I spent thousands on this years RAAM. I’m so disappointed that we didn’t finish. It’s embarrassing. We could’ve, should have finished.
