Glad you and Phillip are home safe and sound! I'm assuming you heard about the serial box bomber. If not, check your local news and be careful. Get some much deserved rest. 🤗
Wow you are also running barefoot at trails! Congrats 👏
Nice race pics! Mine always turn out like caca.
What a gorgeous official photo!
Love that picture with a nice couple enjoying together!
Awesome race pics!
That's a great picture of you Teresa! Nice 😊
Such a great trip and awesome running pic!
Nice ;) great pic! Keep it up
Thank you for your concern, Appalachian Runner! My text messaging went crazy from my family members sending me links to the Austin bombing story. The incidents seem related (a link between victims has been found) and the targeted homes are isolated in one part of the city (away from commerce, etc). Still, just about everyone we know in Austin is being vigilant and observant about strange or unusual packages and people. I do need a vacation from my vacation! I’m having trouble functioning today!
Thank you, Mehmet Ali OK! I think being barefoot is partly the reason we were so slow on the steep declines. I had too little traction on the loose rocks and some of those down hills were so steep I feared I would fall. Phillip was able to move more quickly down them. He is shoes provided some traction and he felt more secure. Running barefoot on trails has its disadvantages☹️
Thank you, Ricardo Diogo, Ben Flores!😊
Kristian Barefoot Sørlie, Rich Rybacki, Stephanie Harvey, Juanma Rudy, Kim Frick, Lucy Gagstetter, Elke Engelen 2090438516998: Thank you! Actually, 99% of my race photos turn out horribly (one always hopes the problem is with the photos, and that the photos are not reflecting a true likeness!). In fact, not one of the many race photos of my son and me taken when he paced me in the Austin half last month turned out decently. I’m pleasantly surprised the photos from this race are decent😊
