Winning my first ultra marathon

My first ever first place finish.

What are the chances I would win my first ultra marathon?

But I did. 45.5KM run in 6:20 was enough to make me the first place solo female runner in the Tread Epic 6-hour Trail Race.

More tomorrow, I promise. But right now I really need to eat and sleep and drain about a dozen blisters on my feet.
