This past weekend I got two mandates from my friend Susette: 1) Take her to a cool trail, and 2) Get a cool jumping picture.
Susette is an amazing human being. I was able to run every mile with her of her first ultramarathon. And earlier this year I ran with her during her first 100 miler. It has been so awesome to see her growth as a runner over the years. Susette and her husband were down from northern Utah and I looked forward to spending a few miles with her.
For someone who hasn't run much in this area, I always recommend the JEM Trail. It is very runnable and seriously beautiful. After a few miles we got the mandatory jumping pictures.
Then I had an idea. Maybe we should do one together! Notice Susette sporting her shirt from the best half marathon ever coming up on 12/13/14 - the Baker's Dozen Half Marathon. I was pretty impressed with Susette's form here:
While we were out there we saw another runner! I am amazed that with all the stunning trails around here, I very, very rarely see another runner. That runner happened to be Bob, a local friend of mine:
The JEM Trail is the first trail I ever ran. That one run started a love affair with trails that is still burning strong. It feels like I know ever rock, twist, and turn on that trail. The only thing that makes it better is introducing someone else to it for the first time.
Your photos always seem to put a smile on my face. Thanx for thatReplyDelete
