Que Deus abençoe os médicos nessa hora tão difícil!!
Today's local Park Record (Park City, UT). Thank you all for embracing, supporting and encouraging Peter! It was an amazing experience to be a part of Trans Pecos 2019! Proud Momma!
Yo. 56 milers. You got this. Get out and do it. Today is your day. You are now one with the west Texas desert. Like wild animals leaving only tracks behind you. Get out breathe and soak it in. Welcome it. Enjoy it. Love it. Push your boundaries. Let’s go!
Where do I find the results from the first stage?
Thank you for announcing the winner and congratulations! By chance will you be announcing everyone who finished?
Where are the stage results being posted as they come in?
One of my students is representing the TPU today for Red Ribbon Week! Good luck y’all! 😎
Hey folks - quick word from the medical director. For those of you participating in the event: If you haven't sent in your medical form, you need to do this immediately! I'm happy to answer any questions.
Endurance amazes me, very inspiring!
Hey folks - quick question from the medical director: What resources have you used or are you using to help learn about and guide your nutritional (food/hydration) plan for the TPU and/or other races that you've done in the past?
