Ricks Captures 2nd at USATF Trail Marathon Champs

Justin Ricks places 2nd at the slick-rock, rope-climbing, shit-show which was the Moab Marathon in 3:14:40.

The Moab Trail Marathon, which must have been inspired by PPRR's Fall Series, played host to the 2012 USATF National Trail Marathon Championships. Team Colorado's Justin Ricks ran a conservative race to finish in 2nd place. "I knew it was going to be a challenging course and knew an easier start would play in my favor once I reached the more technical parts of the course." 

Yeah, it's all fun and games in the first 3 miles of a marathon!
Justin, who moved into third place around mile 10, started out in 12th place. "I felt great all day and had a lot of fun out on the trails! Considering the depth of the elite field, I am very happy with a second place finish at a national championship race."  

OK, now it looks serious
