I had marked the course at steeles creek the previous day with white chalk arrows and pink streamers for each turn. It was my first "run" back since OD 100 and didn't feel to terrible.
That morning I met Tim, the Salomon Rep for our area at the store and we set up the tent and I made electrolyte drink for the run and the post run demo/pizza party at the store.
Tim has a cool car. :)
Then we proceeded to Steeles Creek Park and had about 50 runners come out to run the 6 miles of mostly technical single track. Almost everyone demoed shoes, or already had on salomons and I thought that was AWESOME!! Tim also had Suunto watches for demo. Those were really popular during the demo.
Great looking group!!!!
I assigned myself sweeping duties so I could take down the streamers, pick up trash ( leave the trail nicer than I found it) AND to insure no one took a wrong turn or got lost. I had a great time doing this, and the chill pace was just what I needed. It was a great day to just be out in the woods:)
Survived the first monster climb!!!
smiling now that they know I'm snapping pics:)
My friend Dee and I had an amazing time on the trail getting to know each other. We finished and loaded up my car and when Tim and I pulled into mountain sports, we were AMAZED the parking lot was FULL and there weren't any parking spots!!
Tim explaining to Trevor the mantras is built on an S-LAB platform
Even Jason Suhy came to the demo AFTER he ran the varmint. I made him show me his SHEEP!

THEN after work ALL of the Mountain Sports LTD kids met for dinner because Whitney is going to Italy for a month! to study pottery making!! I took my sons jack and todd with me -- they LOVE the mtn sports kids and always have so much fun with them.
and I really feel Salomon shoes are the best trail shoes. No matter what distance or condition, there is a Salomon shoe that will work for you. trust me go try a pair. you wont regret it.
