It’s about time Julie had a good race, had a good PR, and it’s about time we start posting stories again, starting with this race report from the Rainier to Ruston 50 miler.

What’s Coming Up
A Pacific Northwest favorite right in the backyard of Seattle, this will be Matt’s third running of the race (2008, 2012, 2014), a challenging course with two major climbs and descents. Matt’s hoping to be competitive in this popular race, and at the very least, have fun running with lots of local Seattleite ultrarunners.
Matt’s first Canadian Ultra! This race takes place in Manning Park, Canada, the home of the Northern Terminus of the Pacific Crest Trail, a special place that we haven’t returned to since our PCT hike ended on September 1, 2007!
The first step towards Matt becoming an RN, he’ll take the LPN exam mid-August.
170 Mile Colorado Hike
A little tune-up for Matt leading up to his 100 miler and the final miles to complete Julie’s thru-hike of the Continental Divide Trail, we’ll be hiking from the Herman Gulch Trailhead (off I-70) to Steamboat Springs, CO, which leads us to the next adventure below…
Matt will be taking on this challenging course in the mountains of Colorado, outside the town of Steamboat Springs, running after the “Bunny Money”, the prize money offered up to the top finishers of the race. Matt’s brother Jeff will also be running, while Julie and our friend Eric will be the all-star crew.
