As I prepare for the Marji Gesick 100 trail race, I share tips that may be helpful to other racers, especially since many of the IRONBULL Ultra Trail racers are competing in their first trail and/or ultra.
I reminiscence about being intimidated the first time experiencing the Woodson YMCA triathlon and share stories of others including several that have overcome significant obstacles just to toe the start line.
Over the next two weeks I will be at races, but not racing. I’ve now experienced Wausau 24 bike race through many lenses: volunteer, crew, racer, and now sponsor. Coming back each time has brought new experiences as well as people to experience it with.
