Beacon Rock 50k 2012

For a variety of reasons, I just don't have it in me to write a proper race report. Suffice to say, it was an incredible weekend - with Backyard Half on Saturday too!  For my own benefit, I may come back later and fill in some details. My goal was to finish this tough 50k (near 8,000 ft of gain) in 8 hours or less.  I finished in 7:45 feeling like I continue on so it was a success!

For now, here are some picture from that weekend:

What an awesome weekend!! That is just terrific deserved to be flying high!

And the scenery you Oregonians enjoy! That makes is wonderful in its own right. As I type this, I just came in from a very hot, sloggy, humid run past soybean fields and a cemetery...yeah, I like your running scenery better!!
