|The race that started it all.|
|I just couldn't wash it.|
After many years of running road races I discovered the ultramarathon trail race. While hiking the Massanutten Trail in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, I came across a bunch of runners making their way through the woods. I asked one guy what they were up to and he said they were running a 100 mile trail race (Massanutten 100). I was intrigued, because I didn’t even know that was possible.
Less than a year later I ran my first ultra; The Great Eastern Endurance Run. I only ran the half which was 50K. Not knowing what I was doing, I became slightly hyponatremic, but still finished. I’ve learned how to manage my electrolytes and calories since that first long distance trail race.

See you on the trail.
