Rocky Racoon 100 miler

This weekend my blogger friend Derek will be participating in the Rocky Racoon 100 mile trail run. I want to wish him the best of luck!!

Last year Derek made his first attempt at RR100. It was a tough decision, but he decided to drop out after 60 miles due to injury.

I really respect him for his positive attitude. A lot of people would have been too discouraged to make a second attempt. He fell, he got back up, and did not look back..... that is the Ultrarunner Spirit!!

Happy Trails Derek!!

Gotta run.

This is right in my "neighborhood" and one of my favorite running spots.

I do hope he had fun this time and was able to run injury free!
