This last weekend, David raced a measly 50 miles with his brother, John, in the foot"hills" of Mt. Rainier. The landscape was stunning.
Mile 16.9...You better wipe that smile off your face. You have a marathon plus 7 miles left.
Because this race was the National Championships, the celebrities of trail running were participants. David even got to exchange a few (like 5) words with his running idol- Scott Jurek:
Mia and I were his support crew (the official name for the cheerleaders at these types of races). We camped just a few miles from the finish line.
Early in the morning, we had a tent escapee:
I guess being outside had an effect on her appetite. She kept hoarding food in her cheeks!
Goodbye, Mt. Rainier! See you in a month when Dad runs his 100!
