That's right, BAMPh. I went to AZ this week to see the fam and to just plain 'ol get away for awhile. While I was there I got to run Granite Mountain trail # 347, which is my favorite trail in the whole entire world. I almost love it more than life itself. I know the trail better than I know the back of my hand. I could probably run the thing with my eyes closed- I actually have run parts of it without any sight enhancers (glasses/contacts... my glasses fell off and I couldn't find them once).
I know the trail well, but MBX it is totally different. Hence the picture>>>>>>
It was my first time with my new clipless shoes on an actual MBX. I have worn them before on the road and in my spinning class, but on an actual mountain with actual rocks is an entirely different move altoghether. Whatever, let the pic speak for itself.
Kudos to Uncle Julie!! She braved the mountain and came with me! She screamed the whole time and has some clevage rash, but all in all, pretty fun!!!!
