Ran a loop with Kevin at the Peak 200 in 2014

The start

It is Halloween
See. It's Halloween.
Turn Around Aid Station 



We ran Lap #1 like we didn't have 85 more miles to go.

Smiling but paying the price for Lap #1.
















Rough night plus snow and rain

Made it.

Gave my buckle to my 5yo niece for running her 1st mile on her own.
