What was Ghost Train like, anyway?

By now it’s no secret – I did it! I put in the time training, I showed up on race day, and I did the thing. I finished 100 miles at the Ghost Train Rail Trail Race. But what was the event itself actually like? What happened between start line and belt buckle?

In this episode, Coach Darrell talks a bit about the cold weather that’s set in, and his top tip for taking dealing with it. We talk briefly about setting expectations and planning for success, then we really get into it. Coach Darrell gives us a review of the Ghost Train Rail Trail Race, then follows with a recap of his experience at this year’s event. Finally, he wraps up with some thoughts and pointers on how to go the distance… whether it’s 100 miles, or something else.
