Kettle Moraine 100-miler
One crazy day of running in Wisconsin; heat, humidity, thunderstorms and the threat of tornados.
PR at 21:40 and 3rd Place Overall
Report

Tahoe Rim Trail 100-miler
That altitude whopped my butt and my knee, same one that bothered me at Kettle Moraine 100, shut down my running at mile 77. Walked it in though and got the finish anyway. Tough day and a tough race! Finished grumpy and dejected but had my spirits lifted up by fellow runners and finishers. At the finish line you are always greeted by people who know what you just went through!
26:23 for 20th.
Report

Pacing at Headlands 100
Lost my original runner due to injury but got to pace Catra and Donald. I didn't have to go home with clean, fresh smelling clothes:) The runners were so helpful, they found me other people to pace.
Report

Grand Tetons Hike
Not a race event but even more challenging. 17 hours, 23 miles, two peaks and enough altitude to make this sea level dweller see stars
Pictures and a report here, here and here.

Skyline to the Sea 50k
5 days after the event I was still stinkin slow and slightly sore, must have run really hard.
