The Carl Touchstone Memorial Mississippi 50 Trail Run was this past weekend, March 4th 2017.  The race itself has three distances – 20k, 50k, and 50 miles.  I have not ran an ultra since I moved to New Orleans, and I figured it was time to break that streak.  I ran the 50k distance and finished in 6:08:31 and 31/95 runners at this distance.  Read on for my thoughts on this cool race and finally getting into the southern running community.
