Originally the trip was planned to run the Iceland Marathon. Due to Covid, that race was postponed until 2022. This is how the story began… I walked into a brewpub and saw a woman with race bibs, the next thing I know, tomorrow I am racing! Since we were surrounded by huge mountains, I assumed this race would include significant climbs and it sure did. As seen in the photos, this course has all that trail running has to offer: 16 miles with 3210 feet of elevation, snow in August, spongie moss bogs, rocks-just like we grow them in Pennsylvania, 12 streams and 1 creek crossing…and only 1 aid station!
