Baker Lake 50K Trail Run 2008

I ran the Baker Lake 50K Trail Run with Michelle as a celebration of our 29th wedding anniversary. We had a great time running the course and enjoying the company of the many ultra runners who participated in this run.

The course has a number of old growth cedars and firs. This is a must-do ultra!

Enjoy the photos and slide show.

I enjoyed the photo tour of the race and the celebration. I wish I could have been there, but I had my own woman to take care of.

Great slide show! I have a photo of James with the hammer down and his eyes look the same way - kinda evil. I thought it was just my camera!

Happy 29th!

Wow, I must have been so busy that I didn't even notice the monkey on the table!

Great seeing you and Michelle! My apologies for any aches from the obligatory finish line threshold crossing, but you know I wouldn't have counted your times if you didn't do it! Muhahahahahaha!!!! :-D (And besides, that has got to be the best pic ever for that day!)

And another happy anniversary!

You two are just the sweetest!!!

Question: Did you ever stop :)

Another race in 10 days? You are a pure running machine!!

Happy Anniversary to you both!

And yes, that would be the appropriate title when I'm done, but it's not nearly so cool a nickname as Trail Scat or Rattler. Can't you think of a cooler nickname for me? :-)

Truly awesome pictures and happy anniversary to you both.

You know you have made it hard for all the men now...I mean running 50K and then carrying your wife over the finish line...you have set a pretty high standard for the rest of us ;-)
