  • I run because:

    I blew a disc at age 12. Lived a life limited by the constant inescapable pain. Later in life, I discovered exercise helped the pain… and I kept pushing. Eventually that path led to running. Finally found a surgeon I trusted at age 43 (now age 45) and had a complete disc replacement.  By the time I had my surgery, I had just run an 8.6 mile trail run in Pine, AZ- my longest distance at that point. Had the surgery and began training again at 6 weeks and ran my first half marathon just under 6 months post surgery.  When I don’t run and workout, I feel pain again, so I continue to seek out races that intrigue me, develop my training plan, and go for it. Without something to train for, I feel lost… At some point, I would really like to do a 30k but I haven’t decided where…

This is a very scenic course with its fair share of challenging hills and rocky technical sections. As the final race in the Grand Quad Challenge, it is the most difficult of the 4 races, BUT that said, being a week after the first 2 races and having a chance to acclimate, physically this race felt better despite being a greater challenge than Tetons. As always, Vacation Races did not disappoint and I look forward to many more with them.
