The Ultra Experience

Here's to the adventures of my life which are usually ultra marathon trail running or backpacking but may include other trips, experiences, thoughts, opinions, or pretty much whatever I want. As co-founder of Altra Footwear my life and adventures seemingly revolve more around developing and promoting the best footwear in the world...and I love it!

Fourth one is the charm!

Hardrock: Strike-out
Western: Strike-out
Wasatch: Strike-out (VERY depressed about that one)

So I put in for Cascade Crest 100 a couple days before the cut-off and I'M IN!! I've since done a bunch of research on this race and am very excited to be heading to Washington come August. Looks like a very solid course that will match my style and strengths.

Congrats on getting into Cascade. You're going to really dig it. Greg and I ran it back in 2010 and had a great experience there. Between the course and the organization you can't go wrong (plus being at sea level helps just a little). Let me know if you want some beta on the race.

I am going to go back and see what the issues were with your first three if they are on your blog. I am just starting down the ultra path and the 100 is my goal in the next few years. Best of luck on the Cascade!

Oh wait! I read this post as you DNF'd at the other races. But After I read down a little further you just struck out on getting into the race. Big diffence. LOL.
