Favorite trail running memory: Recently ran my first 100km and I ended up pacing with a new friend who didn’t pass mile 50, at which point he shook my hand and said thank you for the company but to not hold myself back. To my surprise, I ran the final stretch with seemingly fresh legs and a new friend for life. This meant a lot to me as I had ended up running 30+ miles with the guy and he was a sub 3hr marathon runner
