Post Race Thoughts: 50k Ultra Marathon for the Meathead

Post Race Thoughts: 50k Ultra Marathon for the Meathead

32.7 miles, 7,875 feet of elevation gain, at 5,000-8,000ft above sea level. Mix that up with the incredibly beautiful landscape of Montana wilderness and just a tiny bit of wildland fire smoke, and you’ve got the HURL Elkhorn race.

After many hours of hiking up some serious mountains and running the flats and downhills, I’m still not sure if I’m a good endurance athlete, but I definitely got the gut check I was looking for.
