Thanks! We Had a Great Time!

Getting to travel to San Luis Obispo two years in a row now for Race SLO events is a special treat. I remember as I hugged individuals from the crew goodbye last year I said, “let’s do this again!” And we did it! The special invite and opportunity to work with the Race SLO crew renewed in 2017 and my enthusiasm for the fun weekend spread to my boyfriend as well. He rearranged his schedule, trained out of his norm and joined in the half-marathon trail run, his longest trail race yet. We had a great time!
