Trail Runner Nation

Ashley Walsh rejoins Trail Runner Nation to discuss some common norms that you should question:

  1. You don’t have to get faster
  2. You don’t need to run long on weekends
  3. You don’t need a sponsor
  4. You don’t need to apologize for a crappy race on social media

Victor Ballesteros was the second place finisher at the inaugural Tahoe 200 mile Endurance Race beginning on Friday, September 5, 2014.  This 100-hour limited run circumnavigates Lake Tahoe in California.  With over 39,800 feet (12,131 meters) of ascent and 39,800 feet of descent, it proved to be one heck of a challenge for the 90 warriors that toed the line.
