Lessons Learnt at the OSS/CIA 50 Mile Night Run

Last weekend’s 50 Mile Night Run at Prince William Forest Park was one of the most surreal races I’ve been fortunate to take part in. My goal, as stated in last week’s blog post, was simply to have fun, enjoy the rare opportunity for some night running and to hopefully finish the 50 miles in […]
