Some of the finest aid station volunteers at Big Turtle 50 Miler! At one point they had this brilliant idea to announce the arrival of runners to the aid station by throwing “dirt bombs”. They did make a quick remark saying “... not at the runners”. Mike and Brandy, you guys should include “injury from a dirt bomb” line in your waiver for your future races!
Kids and I had so much fun taking in the race action of Big Turtle 50 Miler at the last aid station! I love trail running and all the friendships that it has brought. It was great to see Shane! Great run my friend!
I’m not sure how I managed to look happy at the finish line considering how I felt during last two miles of misery. Big thanks to @runyamacraw and @tjntn for putting together an awesome race!

Another 50k in the books. I think I should actually train for it next year. This one was hard. I almost completely ran out of juice with about 2 miles left to go. I heard cheers at a distance but could hardly make myself move. Nevertheless, great adventure, old and new friends, and a beautiful course.
From Why to Wow.
I don’t like being cold. That was my thought when I got in my car covered in frost this morning on the way to hit the trails. All doubts and reasons disappeared when I was in the woods. I went from “Why am I doing this?” to “Wow! I’m doing this!”
Have a great weekend everybody!
Following the turtle. From Big Turtle training run last Sunday. Big Turtle runners will have a blast. This section of the trail also is a creek bed—your feet WILL get wet! Unfortunately, I won’t be running this race but you will see me at an aid station. Get out there!
