Our good friend and Foresthill trail runner Dave Hope joined us to talk about his start as a Stockton area speedster on the track and cross-country racing scene, to a missed opportunity in the Marine Corps, travels from Belize to Minnesota and eventually finding his way back to California!
Now he has the opportunity along with a few hundred others to toe the line at the 2022 Western States Endurance Run. Dave runs with a smile on his face and a positive outlook and has dialed in his training for this year's race, including a new 50k distance PR. Our very own Jessica Harris will pace him from Foresthill to the river crossing, and we're excited to follow him throughout the day and night!
