More Weekend Pictures

Me posing with my bike, who this weekend was finally named: "Mellow Yellow."
Mellow Yellow with Craig and Amy's bikes, propped up against cedars in the campground we stayed at in Glacier this weekend. On Friday afternoon I tossed my tent and pack in their truck, then dropped my car off in West Glacier and rode my bike in to camp. It was a flat, scenic 10 miles, and a good chance to loosen up my legs while gawking at the gorgeous views. We had a great evening hanging out in camp chatting and cooking s'mores over the fire (hence the smoke hanging in the trees anove the bikes). Then Saturday morning I rode back out, while those two went for a super cool ride up the portion of the Going to the Sun road that's plowed, but not open to motor vehicles yet. It sounds like they had a beautiful day and a great ride. I was jealous I couldn't join them, but that would've been too much the day before a race!

Right: The transition area, with Foy's Lake in the background. By this point it was in the mid-60's and just plain stellar. Mellow Yellow is lying by the fence in the foreground since someone else was parked in his spot!

Walkerruns, about half-way through the run, heading up the slight grade towards Heron Park. I was having my own race at that point, with no one a good ways in front or behind me. Just spectators walking up the other side of the road... ahh, strolling along was looking so nice at that point.

And finally, the Finish Line!!! Note the smile and the "Victory!" arms. (okay, this picture was actually posed... Amy's camera froze up on her during my actual crossing of the finish line... so I had to take off my number and run back through a few minutes later. but this it a really good approximation of what my real finish looked like!)
