April: Participating in my first people-pupster race with Taz at the Canine Classic - way cold but way fun

Flint Hills Trail in Kansas,
|Roses in KC's Loose Park - a lovely running venue|

June: began with many-a-run in one of my most favorite places on earth, Petoskey and Little Traverse Bay of Lake Michigan. We camped right along the lake shore where we were treated to Petoskey's Million Dollar Sunsets every night we were there.
July's most powerful experience Boulder's Relay for Life, 12 hours of reflective celebratory running
|Sunrise at Relay for Life, Potts Field, Boulder|
August: quad deep in marathon training - so lots of trail exploration including a new-to-me trail in Louisville and one of many visits to the Community Ditch-Singletree-Meadowlark trail route.
September: the Monument Marathon near Scottsbluff Nebraska.
A great event near, through and around Scottsbluff National Monument on a particularly hot day this year - but what a fantastic run!
|Near mile 13 of the Monument Marathon|
October: a visit to Petoskey to help mom celebrate her 94th birthday. There's nothing quite like north woods running in the height of autumn colors!
|Running the Bear River Trail, Petoskey, Michigan|
Of course, autumn in Boulder ain't to shabby either!

December: Training has started up again what with Cross-Country Nationals coming up in February. Boulder's winter weather doesn't much care about how much training needs to happen between now and then. One day I try tempo training on the snowpack - and realize it's a lot more fun to just go for a run in the snow with Taz.
