Yesterday we ran one of my favorite races, Hixon 50 in LaCrosse, WI. There were hundreds of trail runners there to run either the 25k, which we ran, or the 50k, which I have ran twice before. It was fun to see so many familiar faces pre-race, during the race and post-race. With our circle of trail running friends expanding after starting The Storm Trail Race Series, I have to admit, I don’t always remember all the names or where we met, but I am very good with faces! So if I don’t call you by name but smile your way, please come over, say hi and remind this forgetful race director of your name 😁 Now, Hixon did a great thing this year by putting names on race bibs!! What a great way to help us name-forgetting runners be able to put a name with a face! It was fun to see names I follow on Facebook, Instagram and/or Strava but don’t get to see much and some I have never met before! More friends and connections were met and made and I can’t wait to see you all again out on the trails! This community is one I love and I love being part of it and it’s growth! See you on the trails my friends!!
