I now have confirmation that both my sister and I are in the Black Mountain Marathon/Mount Mitchell Challenge respectively for February 2008. As I previously posted, we are having an old fashioned family throw down. First one to finish wins. Best of luck sis, you’ll need it. ;-P
You heard it here first, folks. Next February will see the first Powell versus Powell race in at least two decades! Not since the old bus stop to front yard races we held while waiting for the bus have my sister and I squared off in ferocious fleet footed fighting. (for the record, Gretch usually […]
Here is Gretchen’s report on her Women’s Half Marathon effort and an update regarding her training. I think she should run the Quad Dispsea in November before running the Tahoe Rim Trail 100 next July.

Doesn’t my sister look like a nature trail ultra runner? Here she is 21.5 miles into her first trail race, first marathon, and first ultra and she looks like she just stepped out of the house! :-D Keep up the good work, Gretch.
Ok, now that the deed is done, I can expand upon yesterday’s post. On only a couple days notice after my planting a crazy idea in her head and no run longer than 13 miles, my superstar sister ran her first marathon today. And not only did she run her first marathon… but she did […]
