50 In The High Sierra
Ian "Torrid" Torrence opened his spring ultra campaign several weekends ago at the Bishop High Sierra 50. In conditions which proved to be less than ideal and on a course offering only the shade of sagebrush, Torrence managed to harness the spirit of the desert jackrabbit on his way to a hard fought and strong second place. During a post race interview Torrence mentioned the word "hot" and "sweat" in excess of 25 times...this lead me to believe it was just that, "hot". Results can be found here. Nice work Torrence! Also, check out a great picture of Ian runnin' through the high desert here.
