|Top 3 women: fastest from R to L!|
"past champions are always welcome.”

I had a few high points to this day, that had little to do with my run. I got cheer Rory Bosio from CA in as she ran a serious sub 6 hour for a clean win on the Mount Mitchell Challenge (MMC). She and I first met in 2010 when we were both in top 10 at Western States 100. She is a stellar runner and seems like a great woman-wish I'd been fortunate enough to spend more time with her!

|Scott and I reside in the same town...yet he is soon to move to Asheville for a cooler job!|
