Epic Run

I can't believe I forgot to post about this, but back in October, Nathan, Kristie & Tom did a run that Nathan and Tom had wanted to do for a year. The run started at Big Springs National Park up South Fork Canyon, went up over the saddle of the mountain, and down Rock Canyon Park by the Provo Temple.

At the beginning of the trail, looking good

It took them four hours, 11.8 miles, and a vertical climb higher than three Empire State Buildings later, they did it! Way to go is an understatement. It has given me some motivation to get better that is for sure.

Up on the saddle, such a beautiful area

At the top, water bottles empty, next the long decent

Wishing they had brought some food and more water

Nathan's dirt line afterward. We had dinner at Kristie and Tom's house, while Nathan and Tom recovered while watching football. Both said it took them a day to feel better and not sick.
