Leadville Marathon and Father’s Day

Saturday was the Leadville Marathon. The course normally climbs Mosquito Pass and returns to Leadville but due to the snow, the course was changed. At the start, the weather was awesome but the forecast called for showers in the afternoon – they never came. On the adjusted course, I finished about 30 minutes faster than I expected.

Afterwards, Preston and I went to Deerhammer and played cards. The dogs assumed their positions.

Today, we walked bridge to bridge with the dogs and Preston practiced his climbing skills.

On Thursday we leave for Amsterdam and then Tanzania.
