On July 13th, 2019 Kristine ran her 5th Beaverhead 55K race! For running the race 5 years, she earned a SWEET Jacket! Wow! These jackets are awesome! Kristine’s reflection on her race:
My 5th year at Beaverhead was a success. I didn’t PR but I felt amazing all day long. That’s a bigger win to me! This year’s weather presented several challenges. It started out hot and muggy and then there were several small thunderstorms throughout the day.
Just as Stephanie and I were headed out to the scree field at mile 24, a huge storm came in. We had to wait about 25 minutes to leave the aid station. Then the rocks were slick on the scree field from the rain. It was a totally different experience than I have ever had there. Overall I had a great day and I got to finish the race with Stephanie. We were both completing our 5 years and got some sweet jackets to commemorate it!!! I love the Beaverhead! The RD’s, volunteers and town of Salmon are the best!
