Cle Elum Ridge Run 50k – Pilchuck Tree Farm Kinda Weekend

Saturday was Krissy’s Cle Elum Ridge Run 50k. I volunteered, and it was a blast! Great grass roots ultra marathon and a great group of people involved. Krissy’s mom Peggy was there as usual to help out. This was Krissy’s last year race directing this race, at the awards ceremony she passed it on to the Fagans (couple ultra runners from North Bend pictured). I think I’ll run this one next year! Check out the great photos by Glenn Tachiyama.

Congrats to our awesome DART-nuun manager Erik Nachtrieb who finished his first ultra – and in pretty good time too!

Sunday a pack of 10 of us hit Pilchuck Tree Farm for a couple hours of great mtn biking. What a blast! I’ve never riden there before. I HIGHLY recomend it! Smooth, fast, beautiful singletrack… wow. One section called “StarWars” is so nice that when we all popped out on the road from the trail Rinn asked “was I just in heaven?”. We all simply nodded our heads in agreement grinning ear to ear. That is what it’s all about baby.
