Sunday, I had the pleasure of getting a guided run through Red Rocks, just outside of Las Vegas. Ran with some very cool people, Jimmy Gabany and Molly Sheridan of Desert Sky Adventures and about a dozen other people whose names I can't all remember or wouldn't spell correctly. In the small world category....and the small world gets much smaller when it's the ultra runner small world......Jimmy and Molly are the new race directors for the Helen Klein Ultra Classic which was my first 50 miler last October....and Molly was introduced at the beginning of the race as the new race director.
Red Rocks had received a blanket of snow the week before and was absolutely beautiful Sunday. We had crystal clear skies and temperature in the high 20's when we started. I was tourist runner, running ahead, so I could stop, take off my gloves and take pictures along the way. Absolutely 16 of the most beautiful miles I've ran in a while, and I owe a big thank you to Jimmy for picking me up from the hotel and bringing me along.
