Female FKT on the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim

FKT: Fastest Known Time.

a few weeks ago i got an offer i could not refuse.  two of the fastest female ultrarunners on earth asked me to join them at the big ditch and document their adventure.  i was in desperate need of some consistent dirty trail, so i left a few days early and stopped in fruita, colorado.  i love this place.  i ended up getting to run the desert rat’s trail festival trail 1/2 marathon.  it was fun to run anaerobic for almost 2hrs.  great training, if you haven’t seen the scenary take a look at the quick twit vids i took of troy’s and mary’s loop which were part of the race course.

i then met the girls at the big ditch.  a good nights of sleep and they got started at 6am on the dot.  my video of their adventure:
