We didn't have this issue the first season. WE had to pick 2 out of about 10 applications. This season was a different story though. Over 50 applications, most really well thought out and worthy had to be sorted through. Ian Sharman and Liza Howard have a much easier time navigating 100 miles of singletrack than picking only TWO runners. We hope anyone listening knows how tough this truly was, and how much we appreciate each and every listener and runner who applied!
