GORE-TEX TransRockies RunI thought iRunFar readers would enjoy and future GORE-TEX TransRockies Run participants would benefit from a consolidated account of my 2008 TransRockies Run. Speaking of future participants, registration for the 2009 TransRockies Run (August 23-28) opened on October 1 and they’ve already received more applications than they had runners in this year’s race. If you are considering running TRR next year, you might want to head over to the TransRockies Run website get your entry in sooner rather than later. While I can’t promise that you’ll have the time of your life like I did, I’m pretty confident that if you go you’ll meet a ton of great people, see awesome mountain sites, run a ton, and just maybe discover something about yourself.
