That quote is not what you are seeing here. I was smiling because the guy was taking the photo at the crest of the steepest single track section of the course and I was shaking my head at him and jokingly calling him a “dick”.
The Stone Tower Trail Race was a blast. Also, I was totally not prepared for it…When we arrived I walked over to the course start to see what the ground looked like and I realized that about half the race was going to take place on the park’s fire road. What does that mean? Gravel. Lot’s of it too.
I did a quick jog up the hill to see how my FiveFinger’d feet were going to handle the stone’s and I quickly realized this was going to be a painful run!
