Friday afternoon, Harold, Gary, Ernie and I headed down to Bryce. We picked up our race packets in Cannonville and then set up tents at the Bryce Canyon camp ground. We tried to eat out at a nice place, but the town was packed and ended up eating at Subway.
Sat. morning we got up early and Gary and I walked to the start line, it was fun not to have to take a bus and wait in the cold for an hour before running. This year there were over 1,300 runners. I plugged in my classical music and took off, Gary and I leap frogged most of the race, I saw Smooth, that was a treat, said hello and gave her a hug and sent her on her way.
I love this race, so beautiful, and a small town feel, I PRed on this course 3 years ago at 2:18, this year I did it 6 min. slower. After the race we went to Torrey and mom and dad treated us like royalty, dinner out, 2 hikes, lunch out, Farkle in the evening and time kicking back and enjoying each others company. Lovely weekend!
