Before I even toed the line at my first pacing event, I signed up for my second…. With the Silver State 50 Miler on May 20, I knew I wanted some shorter miles and found a half marathon close by, in need of pacers. I signed up for the 1:40 group and that was that. …

Date of Race: 10 Oct 2015 A Change of Plans… I had intended to close out 2015 with my first 100 mile distance, the Rio Del Lago – accomplishing an incredible distance, on a beautiful course, in a scenic location, while taking home my first buckle, and a WSER ticket to boot. It was the …
