|after only a mile we saw this white horse on a garden gate!|
Today I was disgruntled as due to weather conditions had canceled a beach dive and was unable to shoot tin cans with a rifle at the desert due to high winds....
But despite weather running is something I can do does not matter if it is raining, snowing hot or cold I just dress appropriately put the right Brooks shoes on for the surface to be ran on and I am free ....So in memory of Micah True Hammer and I ran Happy for 17 miles mostly on trails.
|Hammer and I before the 17 mile adventure|
|At the top of one of the steepest hills I have ever ran up!|
|Hammer happy on the grass|

Running is about putting one foot in front of the other sometimes runners get caught up in their training and racing, but today Hammer and I wanted to see everything, admire the scenery and just feel great!
|We were running SO HAPPY a total stranger stopped and gave us a beautiful scented Rose!!|
|Before long we were on familiar trails at Bonelli Park.|
|WHen Hammer gets thirsty he always loves a cold drink from the fuel belt|
RIP Micah True you will be missed.
|Recovery drink Citrus flavor my body really needed it, Hammer settled for a doggy bone!|
True was the race director of The Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon, a 50-plus mile extreme race that took place in Urique, Mexico on March 4 and has been featured in the magazines Running Times and Outside. He is the central character --- known as "Caballo Blanco" --- in the New York Times best-selling non-fiction book "Born to Run," by Christopher McDougall that chronicles True's time in Copper Canyon with the Tarahumara Indians, an isolated tribe known for their long, grueling runs.
