It's a simple equation. Take a week off work, gather some trail running friends and hit the trails for 5 days of running the incredible trails of my very own backyard.
We just finished up Day 5 of the B.U.T.T and in a nutshell, good friends, good trails, good times. And if I didn't already love the trails of my backyard before, I am even more smitten. Each of the 5 days of running were quint-essential Canadian Rockies scenery: a kaleidoscope of snow, ice, rock, forest and wild flowers. All the back drop to the star attraction: the biggest, baddest jagged rocky mountains you've ever laid your eyes on. Yep, I love my backyard. And now I love it even more.
Thanks to Keith for coordinating, cooking and shuttling a bunch of smelly runners. And a special thanks to all the friends for joining me on my adventure!
More photos, stories and trail reports of all 5 days coming soon.
