All of us at Blue Collar Runners want to send a HUGE congratulations to Sharon Knorr, one of our featured runners. This past weekend she completed the Old Dominion 100 in Virginia. This is leg one of her Grand Slam quest. We can’t wait to see you rock the Vermont 100 in July!
“Old Dominion 100: solo and unsupported. The runners spread out early on, so I was by myself 90% of the time. But I never felt alone. I am filled with gratitude for all the support that carried me to and through this weekend.
So although I didn’t end up with the finish time I wanted, the race was everything I love about ultrarunning – to have the courage to attempt something seemingly impossible, to share experiences with others and hear their stories, and be inspired by them; to form new friendships; to break boundaries and push limits! Am I motivated to take what I learned and do better next time? Absolutely! But no way will I let a disappointing finish time steal my joy. And I will go back and get that buckle.”
