Medicine Bow

Quad Rock 50

Cascade Canyon in the Teton Range

Seven Utes

After a long, miserable spring, everything sort of came together in June. With some pretty intense physical therapy my knee pain finally vanished. I completed the Quad Rock 50 mile race on very little training. I recovered from Quad Rock faster than any other 50 miler I’ve run in the past, though it was also by far the slowest 50 miler I’ve run. I had two solid weekends of running on the course of the Never Summer 100K, a race I will tackle in late July. I had a nice 20 miler in the Tetons. It’s still a bit shocking how quickly my injury went away and I was able to ramp up my mileage. I’m already feeling so much better prepared for Never Summer than I was for Quad Rock. And it’s a good thing too, because Quad Rock will be easy by comparison.
