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.

I recently received GU Energy Gels for review purposes.  Included were Peanut Butter, Peppermint Stick and Roctane Tropical Nectars. Peppermint Stick is only available seasonally, and the Peanut Butter is a new flavor.  I’ll start this review with the Peanut Butter and Peppermint Stick.  To read the review, click HERE.
