VIDEO: Riley Nachtrieb’s 82 miles on the Olympic Discovery Trail

Back in August, we reported on cross-country athlete and West Seattle High School senior Riley Nachtrieb‘s attempt to run the 138-mile Olympic Discovery Trail. She made it 82 miles before an injury ended her run. Today her 10-minute minidoc has just been published on YouTube – you can watch it above or here.

    riley, don’t believe for a second that you did anything but show what a strong athlete you are! this is an amazing accomplishment and pushing through pain with an injury would have  ultimately impacted you more. so proud of you and so glad you made the decision to stop and allow your foot to can go back out at some point to continue where you left off or try the whole course again but listening to your body is super important!way to go on this massive undertaking!

    What an awesome accomplishment requiring incredible physical, mental, and psychological endurance! And to be so tuned in to your body and have the strength to make the right decision to end when you did shows your maturity as an athlete. Thank you for sharing your journey with us!
