June 23rd, 2018 I found myself in Payette, Idaho and 2 years ago to the day, this is the race that gave birth to my love for the sport that is OCR. It is also one of only 3 Spartan Sprints that can be run in the Pacific Northwest (Yes, the PNW isn't all rain and gloom, we have deserts and sun as well) so it is always one of my home area races that I try to get into the roster.
