    My pleasure. I love to see others images too. Congrats on your first 'proper' run Wink

    Shut up and run


      None yet, but I want to do this one: Well, at least the Half Marathon part of it, so I better get working on those hills.

      Imminent Catastrophe

        ...More well known runs: Bighorn Trail Run 18 miler twice, 50K once Antelope Island 25k once, 50K once Uncle Joe 50K Elkhorn 50K There are getting to be more and more shorter distance trail runs in Montana--Thats good!

         Elkhorn--how was that? I'm thinking about that for next summer.I've really been doing road running this year but want to get back to the trails next year.
