Congrats to Sara Gauthier Smith for finishing the inaugural Pine Trail Run 50k! The race course was a little tougher than anticipated, but Sara handled the adversity well. She also crewed and paced at Cocodona 250 in the days leading up to the race!


Congratulations to husband and wife duo, @running_in_stache and @jabandreas for finishing the @gnar_runners Quad Rock 25 miler! This was a big comeback for Bethany, who finished hours ahead of the cutoff that gave her trouble the year before! For Justin, this was a well-timed fitness test for his upcoming 100 miler. Amazing work by both!

Huge congratulations to @sketchtopia for finishing the @cocodona250!! He put in the work for training, stuck to the plan during the race, and problem-solved like a champ! Amazing effort!!
Extra shout out to his support: lead pacer/crew @followmyrunning, crew captain John, and pacers @i_moran_ @smcknne @emdonns @saferchoices.healthyfamilies @mmclaen550 and Coach @palindrome_rnr.


Congratulations to @superolgi for setting a new distance PR at a 24-hour race in Thessaloniki, Greece. She also took 2nd female! Olga regrouped for this race after inclement weather shortened her goal race a month ago. Her flexibility and resilience really paid off!

congrats to @hollybowersaz, @edustin, and @etaz01 for finishing Whiskey Basin 60k last weekend! This was Erika’s first ultramarathon and a distance PR (by 10k) for both Erin and Holly! These ladies toughed out a long course with true grit and smiles, earning their finisher’s whiskey glasses. Great work by all 3!! β›°πŸ’ͺ🏻

Huge congrats to Brian Champ and Tj Gardner for finishing the very technical and vert-heavy Zane Grey 100k! Brian and TJ had strong races but also spent some time just grinding it out. This race really highlighted how much of a journey each race can be, with highs, lows, and highs again. So proud of them both and can’t wait to continue watching their journey to fall 100 milers!

congratulations to RMC athletes @smcknne and @followmyrunning for finishing Whiskey Basin 92k last weekend. Ryan took 5th male, and Shawn hit a big new distance PR! Very proud of these 2 athletes for all the work they put in before the race, how they handled the uncertainty of race week (local forest fires = massive changes in route and crew/pacing), and the positive outlook both maintained during the race itself! β›°πŸ’ͺ🏻

Congratulations to @caitlynahall on setting the Echo Canyon Loop women’s unsupported FKT! Proud of her effort, including all the course recon on this vert-heavy route beforehand! Caitlyn chose this FKT attempt to keep her training focused and to infuse joy back into her running without the pressure of a race. β›°Working with a coach should yield a plan that supports your life outside of running and keeps your relationship with running healthy. Everyone’s journey is unique!

congratulations to @candypg5 for finishing the Boston Marathon on Monday! The race was a long time coming, and her finish line smile says it all!πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ¦„
RMC teammate @laallison94 cheered on Candace at the infamous Heartbreak Hill.


The April RMC group run was a collab with @werunthedesertpodcast and so much fun! For an upcoming β€œWill It Fuel” episode, runners ate non-sports snacks, treats, and candy before and during the run to see how palatable, portable, and practical they were. Can’t wait to share this episode in a few weeks, and thanks so much to everyone who came out to the run!


Big congratulations to @raisingbooths for finishing the Lake Sonoma trail marathon! Training for vert-heavy races takes extra effort if you live somewhere flat, like OK, and Sarah handled the course well! This race was early prep work for some big upcoming goals, so keep your eyes on her!!


100 miler #3 in the books for @kirstenonthego!! Kirsten packed a lot of races into this past year, making this finish even more impressive! Most importantly, Kirsten was a force of positivity on the course, encouraging and helping other runners. So proud of her!! β›°πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ’ͺ🏻


Congratulations to @_galdana23 for her PR at the San Diego half marathon! Giselle balances training with being a student and family life, and her commitment and consistency paid off!!


Congratulations to @saferchoices.healthyfamilies for her finish at the Zion 100k. This race was a huge comeback after a major surgery 4 months prior! The climb up Gooseberry Mesa at mile 40 (pic) was also a big wild card due to Liz having severe scoliosis, but her training and back held up. This finish was her first Western State qualifier! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

RMC is so proud of Coach Mackenzy Teruel for finishing Rocky Raccoon 100, her first 100 miler!! She overcame freezing overnight temps and gained a new appreciation for warm broth.

Congratulations to @black_duck67 and @krissileigh for finishing the Avalon 50 miler, a new distance for both of them! πŸ™ŒπŸ» They ran about half of the course together, helping each other as teammates. @krissileigh overcame some adversity faced during a few past races to finish strong.
