Ahhhhhhh, year SIX of the Wild Woman Trail Marathon and Relay (and 50K). This was an ON year for me. That puts me at 4 good years with this race and 2 not so good years. I shaved 39 minutes off last year's race (an "OFF" year) and 15 minutes off my fastest time for the course so far.
Beyond the actual race, I simply love going to the event every year. I get to meet up with runner friends from Idaho, Washington, and Oregon....and every year there are runners from far-flung places that show up. It's a great event. So great that I'm stoked to announce I'll be sponsoring a team of high schoolers to run next year!
