This past weekend was the second annual Palouse Double. This is a low-key, local race meant to be free and fun. Day 1 was on my home trails of Moscow Mt., ID. Day 2 was on a beautiful trail in Colfax, WA.
I was shooting for about 55 miles for the two days combined, but when I hit 47.5 I was satisfied and took a seat to rest. Sadie ran 45.25 for the weekend and has been a tired little pup.
I'm off to Seattle this weekend for another double - Seattle RnR Marathon on Saturday, and Bellevue Ghost Marathon on Sunday. Then a 50 or two next month. Pikes Peak (I'm so excited!) in August. And if things go as planned, my first mountain 100 in September: The Bear.
Here are a few photos from the Palouse Double.
