Dances With Dirt 2017

Saturday started out beautiful. I woke at 3:30 A.M. and got right to it. Due to the fact that I choose to camp the night before the race this specific morning was a bit different. I start coffee but instead of the coffee maker having coffee prepared for me, I had to start the camp […]

Dances with Dirt comes at a pretty crazy time, being the weekend after a major holiday. It also comes at a time when the mornings are already warm or warm and humid, which is just the best.
