Power duo Jenn Ruland and Kelly Kozakavich completed this beautiful but gruesome trail marathon. But wait, here's the astounding part...this was Kelly's first marathon, and he did it on a "three week training program". Jen reports his longest run was 16 km leading up to the race. Taylor Mountain was 44 km of technical trail with 4000 ft of elevation gain and 8000 ft of loss. If that wasn't difficult enough, temperatures reached 30 degrees. Jen reports that they finished the race in 6:18, hand in hand with their friend Jocelyn Mamchur. Congrats all, special kudos to Kelly!
