Wow, that was quite a hiatus. Nobody wants to read a long post about not-posting, so let’s just say that starting a new job, going through a divorce, and putting on an inaugural ultramarathon make for a busy year! Something had to give, and unfortunately it was my blogging.
The good news is that the first ever Rim To Rim Trail Run actually happened, on June 6th of this year. I may not have been writing about it, but I was still working hard and things finally came together in a successful race. As much as I learned in the lead-up to the event, I learned even more on race day, and I’m looking forward to sharing all of it with you.
There are plenty of topics still on deck, including:
- Timing services
- Race-day supplies
- Course design and marking
- and more…
Hopefully, all of this may be of some use to the internet at large, but I’ll be focused on updating things for selfish reasons as well. Since the response to my foray into race directing was largely positive, I’m going to do it all over again for 2016. These lessons learned aren’t just for some anonymous internet readers, they will also serve as my own memory joggers as I work to recall the long ago days of 12 months ago.
So welcome back to Race to the Rim, and stay tuned for more to come!
