Dennis and Brian before the start
Russ and Jenny before the start
Brian, Russ, and Jenny before the start
Listening to RD Chris before the start
And they're off!
Just getting started
Now onto the hilly trail
Brian after his first loop
Jenny and Russ finishing their first loop
Brian after the second loop, ready for some company :-)
Loop 3 begins
Brian still looking fresh after 20+ miles
Other runners walking up the hill
Dennis and Brian
Still staying strong
Aid station at canoe access with really helpful volunteers and...mmm junk food!
Starting back up after the aid station
The trail is just beautiful...
All smiles :-)
Having a good time
View of the lake
Another view of the lake
Less than a 1/2 mile to go, big downhill
More downhill to the finish
Speeding up, getting closer to the finish
Now in the parking lot and the final stretch
Jorge, Brian, and Ian post-race
Jorge and Brian
Brian and Kelly
Brian and Dennis, gladly sitting down
Brian bracing himself for a little dip in the lake
Brrrrrr! (both air temp and water temp in the 40's)
Eh, not so bad ;-)
Smiling? Or gritting his teeth in agony?
Others join in on the fun
Alright, that's enough...time for food and a nap!
