We’ve probably all heard someone exclaim, “Ah, my endorphins are kicking in!” at the end of a good run.

The final results are in for the 2015 Northern Trail Running Series. Devin McDowell took top honors for the men and Melissa Lewis won the women's division for a record third time. Lewis had won the 2011 and 2013 series. Bob Vitale and Oralee Nudson continued their impressive streak of completing every race in the series since its inception in 2008. Cathi Batchelder was the only other runner to complete all seven of the trail series races this season.
The 2015 Gold Discovery Run continued the 14 year string of a fun and safe event with wonderful, smoke-free weather on the "new" course. This year the race was dedicated to the late Jim Madonna, and the Daily News-Miner published a feature editorial on the event and Jim on Monday, July 27. Jim was both a running legend in Fairbanks, and a long term mining professor at UAF.
