It’s been a long and expensive year of racing. My goal this year was to compete in all five of the U.S. Trail Running Series races, and with any luck, come in the top 5 overall. The series consists of the four U.S. Trail Championships at 10k, 15k, Half Marathon and Marathon, as well as the U.S. Mountain Running Championships. This involved a trip to Washington state, North Carolina, New Hampshire and two trips to Oregon. Needless to say it was a pretty exhausting racing season… But it all paid off brilliantly. My performances in each of the events added up to being named the 2011 USA Trail Series Champion – Not just masters, but overall!
It’s been a big year for the Running Raw Project and I look forward to an even bigger year in 2012.
Here is the official press release.
