Another pic on the Hardrock 100 course. I think this must be the most beautiful place to run anywhere. I just hope that I can experience that run in some capacity again.

"The people that I have met are not foolish; they are aware of how tired and cold and hungry and frightened and hurting and discouraged and disoriented and how possibly injured they will become. They know they will face great physical, mental, emotional, and possibly spiritual challenges as they make their way to the finish. This is what they are racing against. This is their challenge. This is what I admire." Carolyn Erdman

I have had a few descent runs this last week. It has been a trying week as I have had the flu and have been filled up with chunks of lung butter the size of church mice! Yuck! I think I am on the road to recovery and so that means that I really have to get serious about my training. Today, Karen and I discovered a new trail that went down and down and down.... and then we turned around because we were not really prepared for a LONG run. The climb back up was hard. It felt good, though, to push past the cob webs in my head and breathe the clean cool air.
I am excited about getting some new shoes. The Brooks Adrenaline trail shoe is my shoe of choice right now. Have a great weekend!

Wanna go back to Hardrock? You and me both. Some of my favorite scenery anywhere. In terms of mountains, none are more beautiful. (The Tetons are an awesome sight from afar.) Maybe next year!
