Still on a high from this weekends @runtherut! Had to share this pic they took of me coming up to the final aid station. The aid station staff and race organizors did an amazing job of putting on and supporting the race. High fives from @pederanderson at this moment kicked the stoke up to push hard till the finish despite cramps. Being pretty new to this Ultra thing, I have found the community surrounding it to be so amazing. Stopping to help fellow competitors, finishing their race and continuing to cheer and just the overall attitude and energy towards the sport is second to none. #runtherut#thisistherut#milesofsmiles#runfarbehappy#mountainsaremytreadmill#skyrunning#runnersrock#beachparty50k#myboausa
Buzz, it's hard for me to comprehend the effort and focus you harnessed at this weekend's #bighorn100 . For your first hundred, the weather was far from ideal. However, each time I saw you, your head was held high and you kept on fighting towards that finish. Training and running with you has been inspiring.
Now, rest up, enjoy your success, and eat all the donuts.
I've been upping the miles moving into the final month before the @commongroundmt traverse. Proportionally, the amount of creek time has increased too. Needless to say, so has the icecream. #runbozeman#trailrunning
Stressed, tired, grumpy and none of it really matters. A few miles past the last road, across a creek or two, and through a field of wildflowers and it all falls away. #runbozeman#trailrunning#mountainrunning
Embracing a mini taper by playing slowely in some of my favorite places. Saturday is going to come with a bang and my legs are feeling bouncy.
Thanks @slukenelson for gathering the community down at Scout Mountain. It's going to be wonderful to reconnect and race with so many great people this weekend.
Made the preseason pilgrimage back to Helena to show Buzz around the #dontfencemein course. Dry trails, flowy single track, and a plethora of spring flowers makes this course special.
I'm looking forward to cheering @zach_altman and @adventuring.naturalist on this year as they train for @commongroundmt. I'm going to wait a few more weeks and kick off my race season with the Scout Mountain 35k in Pocatello. Summer is here at last!
