Shortly after I graduated from high school a friend of mine gave my name to a couple in Seattle who were looking for crew for one of their local races, and that's how I came to know Ben and Jen. (note: they tell a slightly different story that is longer, and more embarrassing, so since this is my blog I'm going to leave those details out) Since then they both have been close friends of mine and subsequently Eliot's as wel ...
