Over the weekend my sister and I ran and completed the Booneville Backroads Ultra 50K. I attempted the 100K last year but ended in my first (and hopefully only) dnf. I needed to come back this year to redeem myself. My sister, having run only a handful of half marathons in the past, was motivated and determined to finish the 50K with me. We agreed we would run it together. After having lost both our Dad and other sister in a span of 5 years, we both had fire inside that we would finish in honor of them. The course was far from easy- with mountainous hills, storms/rain, and mud…lots of mud, we finished!
My husband, who’s also an amazing crewer and videographer put this video together of my sister and I’s race experience. Check it out!
