Capitol Peak was my first 50 mile race. I am new to ultra running as of this year, and to try a 50 miler so soon, well, I must love it! I figured that if I enjoy 50K why not 50 miles? It only means I get to be on the trails longer doing what I love! Although I knew it might be a little (not a lot, mind you!) crazy, I was willing to give it a go. I was lucky to have my friend and fellow Down Sound Racing partner, Challis, running with me.
Challis keeps me warm at the start lineEARLY START
Race started at 6 AM, it was just getting light.
