Hagg mud?

Yesterday was the Hagg Lake Trail Runs 50k/25k. With the dry weather we've had lately there wasn't much mud to be found. The mud is part of the fun, but I don't think anyone missed it on such an awesome day for a run!

Marc ran the 50k and the little guy and I volunteered. Here are a few pictures of the day. The little guy borrowed the camera while I was working the finish line and took 50+ "nature" pictures. But I had Olga's camera too and took more running pictures with hers. Hopefully she has some good ones to post too.

What a beautiful day. Congrats to your guy on the great finishing time. Glad you and your little one got to be out there enjoying the beautiful day too!

Thanks for sharing the photos! The first two are completely breath-taking!
Skirts are pretty funny, although they look a way better on ladies. I know, I know, tastes differ :)))

I'm sure the runners appreciated having your experience as a volunteer, Sarah.

I have no clue what to say about the skirts, though.....

Beautiful pix!

Great photos. I wonder if this will start a new trend with the fellas?

Bret said...

Hey Sarah I missed seeing you out there. I was late to the start as usual. Hope you get back to the trails soon!

Nice pictures! Looked like some fog drifted in as the sun was rising. Ok so why were the men in skirts!? Is that a Hagg Lake tradition?

Those OR guys are nuts! What a gorgeous day - the weather has been wonderful lately hasn't it? Some day I'm gonna run Hagg, and I'm gonna wish we had the weather you had.

Those skirts are hilarious! Totally cracked me up.
I'm getting ready to finalize plans for my airfare, hotel and car rental for the Forest Park 50k! Any suggestions on a hotel close to the race?
