Rocky Raccoon 100 Miler

Heading to Texas to run the Rocky Raccoon 100 miler, 5-20 mile laps, looks like I’ll be crossing that bridge 5 times 🙂

I’ve never run a flat 100 miler before, I’m sure this will whip me into shape for the upcoming race season! Looking forward to running with Wasatch Speed Goat Team Mate Beth Simpson-Hall…

This will be a fun race to cruise in my Hoka Bondi-B, the cush ride…!!
