The Upcoming 2010 Wasatch 100 & A Day in the Catskills

After a bit of deliberating, we have decided to tackle the Wasatch Front 100 Mile Endurance Run in the beautiful state of Utah.

It looks like the highest point is 10,450ft, which is at mile 78.46, how fun, just when your fresh and feeling your best it starts getting interesting.

Elizabeth's 2010 Burning River 100 Mile Endurance Run Race Report

This was a very defining moment and offered me a sense of closure and happiness knowing she was free. My mind and my heart seemed opened to joy again and I knew I wanted to be in the woods running with a very special group of people, my ultra family.
