Really sorry for the loss of your friend
My prayers to you and to Chris's family.
I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. Truly tragic.
My deepest sympathy. My thoughts & prayers to you, Amy and all of their
family and friends.
This is terrible news, I'm so sorry. He sounded like a wonderful person
we can all learn from - to love life and the adventures we create.
Thanks for sharing your memories.
I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. I've lost too many
running friends over the years, including one to a drunk driver.
At times, when things are going poorly for me in an ultra, I often think
of my deceased friends and remember that they can't run any more. This
often reminds me how lucky I am to be alive and to be out there, even
when it doesn't feel like fun.
In that way, I feel like I keep my departed friends "with me" and I
honor their friendship.
That's terrible, Jamie. What a tragic complete and utter waste!
I'm so sorry to hear this horrible news. It was nice to see the
So sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. Our thoughts are with
you, his family and friends. From your photos and words, it seemed like
he must have been a wonderful person. It is a great tribute that you
will be dedicating your Western States run to him.

I'm so sorry, Jamie!! I had no idea that you knew Chris. This wasn't the
first time that I've heard him likened to McCandless. I know you'll be
thinking of him every step of the WS 100 - it's a lovely tribute to his
spirit and yours!!
I'm very sorry for the loss of your friend. He looks like a very fun
guy. Know (really know) that he will be with you every step at WS100.
I'm sure he's making his epic walk right now as I type this too. :)
Your post was a great (yet very small) way to celebrate his huge love of
life and I'm sure it was hard to choose the right pictures and words to
share his memory with us after such news...
My thoughts are with you and of course his girlfriend.
