This morning I was graciously allowed to join local Methow ultrarunners Kaarin Kelly and Alison (soon-to-be-Naney) Hanks on an OD up some sweet secret trails to Rendezvous pass.
Proper fueling begins and ends with HAMMER. And coffee. And a melon.
Like a dolt, I packed the camera and watched the incredible views as we ran up West Fawn Rd, but neglected to stop and snap some shots because, well, you know those ultra folk. They don’t stop for anything. I got dropped four times because I had to use the ‘loo. But I did manage to get this quasi-artsy photo in aptly named “Bear Poop Meadow”:
Tomorrow is a long cross bike ride with Alison and the folks, then a birthday dinner for Dad (a bit early, but big 6-4). More business next week.
