Ya, you read that right, 50 MILES!!!! Apparently, this race is described as the toughest 50 mile trail run in the US. Are you fricken kidding me, it’s 50 miles, I wouldn’t want to run that far downhill, with wind at my back. Only 22 women completed the race and Nancy finished in 15 hours, 46 minutes. Nice work!

Nancy, you’re amazing!!! I feel the same as Brett above! I’m looking forward to wodding with you when you’re recovered enough to come back!

Way to go Nancy!!! Can hardly wait to hear the stories, I bet there are some good ones.

Nancy, that’s just awesome! And wow, great race picture too, you make it look easy!
Be very proud!

That is amazing Nancy, way to go!!! Everyone at CFC is proud of you.

Congratulations Nancy on such an amazing achievement! WOW! Way to go!!!

Nancy…you are AMAZING! (I don’t even like driving 50 miles!!) We are very proud of you!!

Way to go Nancy I can not imagine the mental as well as physical stamina to complete such an achievement.

Thank you to Brett & the folks at CFC for all your support in getting me to & through the race- both mentally & physically. It was long winter of training & I was happy to have a successful, enjoyable (mostly!) day. I just need to add navigation skills to my training & I’ll be good to go again. Thank you to everyone for your kind comments today!
