Are you shocked, Salty readers? Is this really our ultrarunning trail-obsessed Clove posting about road marathons? It is! It really is!
Let’s not forget that this Clove began as a marathoner, and having completed my fair share of them, I like to think I have a pretty good handle on what makes a user-friendly marathon. And after this past weekend’s adventure at the Burning River 100, I’m all too happy to be discussing a different distance that also just so happens to be my running first love.
