Off to Running Camp....erp. I mean, The TransRockies Run!!

Let the adventures begin- I am off to TransRockies 2008 edition and am leaving on my roadtrip tomorrow after work. Wooohoo!

I have told my partner Meghan to think of our little adventure in the Colorado Rockies as if we are going to "running camp". We are going to go for little runny-runs every day, eat a lot of food, get some massages and spend a lot of time sleeping in our tent. It's running camp!!! I can't wait! And of course, I am very excited to be meeting up with Meghan for this little adventure.

Keith and I are driving from Banff to Yellowstone and then from Yellowstone to Colorado. Should be shits and giggles! My honey is going to be on volunteer duty, helping the official race photographer (our buddy Dan) and will be out on course every day! My own personal cheering squad. Love it.

Here are some pictures from last years 2007 run, all taken by my super-duper partner Steven Miller. Have a great week!

Day 1 - Sufferage at Altitude: Leslie is one hurtin' unit.
