Pre Sun Mountain Washington 50 km Ultra Prep

Today Dave and Jackie are getting ready for our first 50km ultra together.  We drove to Winthrop, Washington and are ready to race!

Cascades Mountain range.

The drive to Winthrop was spectacular; through the Cascade Range.  This is Highway 20 which only opened 10 days ago.

Jackie waxing her legs while driving!

Jackie multi-tasked by waxing her legs in the truck while we drove.  Just another day for an Ultra-Runner…

Carb-loading the night before!

We found a great Mexican restaurant to hang with our friends Fiona and Doug.  We made sure we were well hydrated…

      Thanks, Dave. Wow! you sure ripped up that 50 miler with your sixth place! We will be back next year and I’m sure we will cross paths again. Look us up for a trail run if you are in Port Alberni!
