This weekend I’m heading to McCall, Idaho to run the McCall Trainrunning Classic 40 miler! My husband will be timing the event and our five children will be helping him out, which they are excited about. I love when we can travel to these things as a family and all participate in some way. Since our children are growing up as race directors’ kids they are learning some fun skills and are pretty helpful already! I know they enjoy getting to know the runners and meeting the other kids who come along to these races as well, so it’s a nice time for all of us. We are not the race directors for this fun trail event. Some friends of ours are – Jeremy and Brandy Humphry are and they do a wonderful job! It will be fun for the family to help them out.
I am eager to hear “GO!” so that I can lose myself in the gorgeous scenery, the lush forest, the views of the lakes and the wildflowers lining the singletrack trails and ATV roads we’ll be running. I am craving a good soul-cleansing and I cannot imagine a more beautiful place to shed some of my worries and emerge refreshed and renewed! See you in a few days with a full race report and some really beautiful photos!
