Armed with negative COVID test results, face shields, and multiple layers of face masks, the San Francisco girls traveled to the high desert for an ultramarathon. For most of them, this will be their first race in almost one year.
Pre-race excitement ran high for the crew, which included Jenny, Sophie, Holly, and Lizzy. The girls settled into a day-before-race routine of jogging, stretching, and quiet, grateful anticipation amidst Utah’s dramatic scenery.
