in search of sunlight, harmony, and pain

Location: Howe Residence, Long Reach, Maine
Time: May 22-25
Why: For adventures, friends, harmony, awesome food, new experiences, memories, and, oh yeah, running. Lots and lots of running. Between Barry, Joel, and I, we logged 1, 103 minutes and 6 seconds of running. That's over 18 hours. (That's where the pain part comes in.)


(I love the greys in this picture. It's dark, foreboding, and yet still incredibly peaceful and beautiful)




[Before the start of Joel's 50 k (30 mi) trail race]

[Barry with 71 k down (44.4 miles) and 9 k (5.6 miles) left to go. Yeah, in case you were confused by all those numbers, that is a long ways. 50 miles to be exact. And he's smiling!?!)

Christy!!! You're amazing! You did 25k right? Good job! Was this your first long distance?

Hi Martina! You're enthusiasm is infectious :D Yes, I did the 25k. It wasn't my first long distance run (if you consider a half marathon long distance.) I ran the Knoxville half marathon in April.

I saw on your comment on Joel's blog that you're training for a half marathon! That is awesome! Which one are you training for?
