We just returned from a long weekend road trip to Montana. It was a perfect visit, although too short as always. We had great weather- nothing beats a beautiful fall day in Montana. We also had great company on the drive – Deana and Dana, we had a blast talking and playing travel bingo. At home we spent time with so many friends and relatives and just enjoyed every second of it. My mom is doing great and everyone was in such a great mood, it was awesome to be around. :)
My foot and attitude continue to improve and I had a couple amazing runs there. The elevation and dry air kind of kill me but I still loved it.
Here are a few pictures. First, the landscape and a few family photos, and then a ton of running pictures. Enjoy!
In between all that sight-seeing and visiting, we ran:
First, on Saturday, we ran up Mount Helena. We gained about 1000 feet of elevation in 1.75 miles, peaking at about 5,400 feet elevation. It HURT!
Second run on Sunday- 7 miles through Helena. We ran up along the base of the mountain and back to the house.
Thanks so much for stopping by. :)
