running under the BigSky
Forgot to say way to go for your DW. That's great she's running and she did very well.
danke, I'm very proud of her; she's only been running about 6 months, but I think the trail running bug has bit her pretty good
she signed up for a 30k on the 22nd (it'll be my first 50k), she's nervous about it, but I keep telling her she'll be just fine
“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.”
Nice time on your first PDD! That course is brutal fun. I skipped on the margarita too, but was glad for the water at the top since I bit the dust just as we started the climb on University Mountain, spilled all of my water, and was covered in blood & dirt when I finally got to the top. Sounds like you had a great run, and congrats on the awesome finish time. If you're ever in Missoula again, let me know--I'll meet you, your wife, and your mustache at the trail head.
It was really nice to meet you ouch!!!! despite all the adversity, looks like you had a great finish as well- congrats
I'll definitely take you up on that (I should have let you know we were hiking to Stuart Peak on Monday, next time)
