A gaggle of Rocky Mountain Runners headed up north to the trails in Lory State Park (Fort Collins) to run Nick Clark’s Black Squirrel Half Marathon on Saturday Aug 31st. Here are a few shots of our runners on the beautiful (and brutally hot) day!
Adam St. Pierre leads the charge up the first climb:
Mike Grady leads the next pack of men:
Ginna LOVES the uphills despite everything she says to the contrary!
Malory rocks the team Achilles shirt and shows the dude behind her how to have fun!
A train of runners up the first (and only) monster climb of the day:
Back down in the flats, Adam charges ahead on the final mile to the finish:
Grady goofs off instead of running faster 😉
And, Malory, of course still rockin’ the trails like a natural – you’d never know this was her very first trail race!
Post half-marathon festivities included a bit of fun at the Tour de Fat in Fort Collins!
