The 50 mile course consisted of 2 loops with the 2nd loop run in the opposite direction. As soon as I saw the 50 mile course leaders, I walked the course in reverse to meet Sean. I met Sean about 2 miles from the finish and ran with him into the finish.

Although neither of us ended up finishing quite as fast as we would have liked, we both got some good miles on our legs on beautiful trails at altitude and we had a great time camping with our friends.
One of the highlights of the trip was our friend Liz's great cooking! She was able to cater to our vegetarian needs and to our vegan friend Ryan too! Best camping food ever with vegan green chile, homemade tortillas made in the snow, and vegan brownies! Beautiful mountain running and awesome veggie eating were a WIN WIN!
