Psycho Psummer 50k
Psycho Psummer is an event put on by Trail Nerds, which is based out of Kansas City, Kansas. It has three offerings of 10 miles, 20 miles, or 50 kilometers. I was visiting my best friend Sean in Lincoln, NE, as the final destination of my road trip out West to watch, crew, and pace Western States 100. Being that I was nearby and wanting to test some of the training I had done on the mountainous trails of the West, and not to mention looking for a good tune-up for Six Days in the Dome (SDD), I jumped at the chance to check out the trails of Wyandotte County Lake Park. The course is probably the most technical trail I've raced on before. It is described as: "A beautiful but challenging run on hilly single-track trails... All on bridle trails and single-track trails. This is a rocky and hilly unpaved loop course." Coupled with the temperature being well into the 100s (106 heat index I believe) this made for a good hard effort out on the trails.
