      The amazing strength of you and your family through this has been inspiring, Ryan. Keep on running to burn off the crazy so you can be that solid rock for your family that you always are! You're a wonderful daddy and Hannah's going to have some pretty wonderful stories to hear about how the whole family, extended family, friends and running buddies all came out to love on her and your family during this. <3 Keep on keeping on, my friend! Hannah's a fighter and it will be alright. <3

    Spring wild flowers are still going strong in the high country. The fire lookout guy said he still had snow up there until last Tuesday!

      Beside the awesome wild flowers the best part is the teeny weeny single track you can see in the background. That and no people 👍

      We are at about 8500 feet. Lotsa green. West mountain is between Smiths Ferry and Cambridge. East Mountain (on the Wild Idaho course) is between Crouch and Cascade. A little different terrain so maybe that's why it's drier there?

      Dang! That's awesome! My legs feel super weird. Like Bambi newborn deer legs with no strength since the race! Haha! Hopefully they'll be repaired and recovered shortly so I can have fun again too!

      Crushing your legs on a downhill asphalt race probably didn't help! I don't think Derek has been out all week either, hope he is ok.

      I texted Derek and haven't heard back. I'm hoping the same thing. He ran that 20 min faster than I did!!! It's funny, during the race, I felt totally awesome and kept passing people. I felt zero pain or discomfort - it was just fun. I did push hard the final 2 miles to make sure I hit my NYC qualifying time (and passed two more people.) I liked how it felt to leave it all out there, but I guess this is the consequences of NEVER training on roads and then killin it on race day! ha!

      It is definitely a must do area. Jill, from where I took this photo you can hike up from a trailhead at the bottom and it's only a 7 mile round trip hike. It gets pretty steep but there were plenty of people hiking. You could stay all week and do short fun hikes!

      Oh my god get out of my head! Exactly what I was thinking! bahahaha I'm so glad you got to see some of the course! Super pumped for you to get into Hardrock, it will happen. And when people ask you if you've seen the course before, you can say YES and not get the "you are crazy and not finishing this race" looks that I got lol

      I've spent a bit of time in this part of the country, and it is truly fantastic. Glad you got to spend some time up there. And yes, for sure, you're more susceptible to sunburns at altitude.
