The race goes from Stanley, Idaho down to Sun Valley, a total of 62 miles. Our team consisted of six running women and two volunteers to help out with logistical matters. Each person on our team ran 2 five-six mile legs. In the morning I ran 6 miles with a slight elevation gain of 300 feet. In the blazing and glaring afternoon sun I ran 5 miles with a decrease in elevation of 300 feet. My aunt Vanessa ran the famous Galena Summit leg of the race. That leg was five miles with an increase of 1000+ feet. DIFFICULT. It was a good reminder to myself that I can do hard things... and my aunt can do even harder things.
