Ulrich Racalls Ultra Run Win
She says it was a grueling two days in the most extreme heat she has witnessed but ultra distance runner Lindsey McElroy Ulrich said when she makes a commitment to finish something, she does. Ulrich said more than half of the field had dropped from the 100 mile Scout Mountain race over the weekend. The 42 year old Ulrich was the first woman to cross the finish line and was 16th overall. She said she kept telling herself that she was going to finish as she described the final mile as the longest mile in her life. Ulrich’s closest competitor was more than an hour behind her as she crossed the finish line. She also said that while her run last year on the Pacific Crest Trail was the longest, this race was more intense.
