Wes Plate Cocodona 2021 Sedona AZ

Mile 154 of 256, Sedona, AZ - "The highest high was when I was in the Sedona area, around mile 150 to mile 160. I was running like a champ. I couldn't believe I had so many miles on my legs, but yet I was so energetic and feeling so good. I just felt so positive and happy and I moved really well." - Wes Plate

Graves PX 7" Shorts

Graves PX 7" shorts

"I use the Graves PX shorts and I love them because they have the phone pocket in the back, but they also have hand pockets on the sides. Sometimes I find that I just want to put my hands in a pocket as I'm walking. These shorts are my favorite for their flexibility and versatility and storage, but also they just give me a place to put my hands sometimes. They worked great." - Wes Plate
