My race in Jackson was my 30th. The Tetons were a beautiful backdrop to a particularly meaningful day. We drove in to Jackson from Denver the day before. I think this was the farthest I've ever traveled -- by car --for a race. It was really scenic and allowed us to explore a bit. (We … Continue reading Race Recap: Jackson Hole Half Marathon 2016
Week 6, 7, 8, and 9 of training has been mostly a blur because of the constant flurry of work.
