Good times


Fat Dog 120 in just two weeks time. It has been a long and toilsome journey back to health and fitness, but I am thankful for the process as much as the outcome.  I finally feel ready to walk the fine edge between breakdown and breakthrough.  Not sure there is much difference in strategy between 100 and 120.  I guess I will find out.

Matty and I cut that step into the big round in 2013.  Our saw was too small to go all the way, so we spent an hour hacking a step in so you could vault over.  The next year, the Forest Service removed the round. 

Brundage Cat Track 10K

Brandi's 2nd year as RD of the Cat Track 10k.  It grew to over 100 runners.

McCall Trailrunning Classic

Boulder Mtn. with Keith, Jess and Kent.

RD duties under ominous skies.  We made 4 trips up the Ladybug and Jughandle Peaks to get it marked and ready to race.  Three of those trips were under serious threat of lightning.

Now that is a racecourse.  (just follow the pink ribbons)

Patrick Butte lies 8 miles from the road.  It is the peak in the left of photo, but we didn't know which of these peaks was the true summit until we found the summit marker.

Stay Vertical Cross Country Camp

The girls of Lick Wilmerding High School came back for their 3rd year to our cross country camp.  This is a pic from our climb of Bear Pete Mtn near Burgdorf.  This is the top of our new 30k race on September 20th.

    1. Get out there and run it. Better yet, chainsaw Pete Creek for me! There are a few nasty pieces down and the motobikes don't ever ride there to cut it. We did it last week. It is such a good course. Do you know how to get to the summit?

      Finish with a soak at BDorf.

    2. I've never run out there. Will get out there before the race weekend arrives. Maybe this weekend or next as things are quiet at work right, fire wise.
