Volunteering at the Hardrock 100 highlighted some essentials for ultra prep and mid-race management
Thanks for the shout out and the tough love. That DFL was my proudest finish. -Peter Lawson.
Wonderful piece Sarah. This gave me all the feels. Aid stations are so important and it was fun to read your dive into such a great one!
Best of luck with your race this weekend :)
Julie sounds amazing. This was such a great look behind the scenes!
While I’d never consider doing an ultra, your story created a vivid picture for me to experience this event. Thanks for sharing.
Great piece Sarah. I had a great time working alongside you at Animas, and you captured the Animas vibe well. Thanks again for all you do for the ultra-trail community. 😊 I’m excited for your High Lonesome!
Wonderful post!!! Such an amazing story! I'd love to have you on my running podcast Martha Runs the World to talk about aid stations and your recent Hard Rock experience! If interested, email me. Thanks! email@example.com
Great article Sarah. It was nice volunteering with you. You captured the vibe of the Animas Forks station so well. It was the perfect mix of skills, humor, hard work, exhaustion, compassion, endurance and some well-controlled chaos made it both a great station and a unique experience for all who came through!
As for the blisters mentioned, they were tough little buggers. :)
Enjoyed your article and the others you have wrote.. I did the R2R2R 2 years ago at 60, mid October solo. It was an unforgettable experience for me and most surly for you also. I have been at your aid station and it is first class. Last year I came through as a pacer and the year before waiting for my runner that didn't make it and I went up and found him. Maybe our paths will cross this year at Hard Rock.
