"Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. Its the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells 'CAN'T', but you don't listen. You just push harder. And then you hear the voice whisper, 'can'. And you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are." ~unknown~
Though most of my runs are solo, those times where I am able to share the trails (or bike paths) with my good friends stand out as some of my most memorable outings of the year. Always great to talk training, racing, mountain goals, mountains, more mountains, family, shoes, mountains and a zillion other topics. Thanks for all the great times!
Homie on Green (Feb. 4th 2012), one of the rare occasions we have worn snowshoes, most likely just to pack the trail so we have a better, more runnable trench for the following days.
Dave Mackey (David Riddle in back visiting town for a few days and joining us for a tour of Green)
Dave, Homie and Kendrick after Homie's 10th lap on Green in one day. Almost certain to see a Mt. Lion with Kendrick along.
Me blinding the camera with my zillion lumen headlamp.
