Five months ago, I accomplished my first double crossing of the Grand Canyon, running alone from the South Rim, to the North Rim, and back in about 14.5 hours. I looked forward to returning, this time starting from the North Rim. I invited my brother, Bob, to join me. Bob had recently finished the St. George Marathon, and had run many 30-mile training runs. I believed he could make it just fine and I looked forward to sharing the experience with him.
