See you next year!!
Mother Nature did her best to slow you down, but you could not be stopped! We hope you used up those free Trail Toes samples to ward off the dreaded trench foot yesterday – WHO has nasty feet pics?? We want to see them – start posting away!!!! [editors note – maybe Pete does, but I don’t!!]
We were absolutely flattered to have the Comanche Company join us in force yesterday. Josh please let 1SG. Gentles know he & his guys are welcome back anytime. It was great getting a chance to meet them all. Thank you for your service to our country.
How awesome were the volunteers? Pretty special if you ask us! – Thank you for your support.
To all the racers, families and friends thanks for sharing your experience with us. You all are a massive inspiration and this whole event is nothing without you, thanks for making it super extra moose crappy special!! 🙂
Special thanks to The Run Experience (Nate & Kirk), Noren Films (Maria, Sterling & Margaret) for helping us provide a much richer community experience for everyone. We enjoyed hanging out in the brown barn, that was new this year! We are already focused on next year’s event and the AAR sessions are yielding some wonderful stuff….stay tuned for more… (if you have ideas let us know!)
Much love to Radio Mike & the Medic team (Kyle, Cody & Tyler) for keeping us connected & healthy this year. Brian, Sara, Henry, Robin, Melissa & Nick you all made this look far easier and more organized than we can recall, we can’t thank you enough!! We hope you get some well-deserved sleep. Matt Baatz thanks for your work on the Green Mountain Trails!
Last but never least, hats off to the “glue crew”: Chris, Marion & Peter B. You define ‘beyond limits’ in your passion for this race and your efforts …congrats on putting on the best Peak Ultra I have ever been a part of – I’m humbled already by the memories we made this weekend.
Thanks for coming out in the woods to play with us!
