It’s barely 8 a.m. on a Monday morning and Travis Macy and Brandy Erholtz have already gotten a workout in with barely 24 hours before jumping on a flight to Oregon to compete in the Gorge Waterfalls 50k ultra marathon. It’s the lifestyle for these endurance runners.
“We’re definitely not weekend warriors. Like a lot of people in endurance sports we’re competing at a very high level,” Macy said. “We’re both parents, we’re teachers. We do many different things. It’s a balancing act.”
