South Rim down to Phantom Ranch via Bright Angel, back via South Kaibab. Out with Wasatch teamie Jim Skaggs and Larry, joined by Mike and Tina, met with Jim Kerby and Co, Jamie Gifford and Co. Back as a duet. Met with Marathon Maniac Frederick "The Penguin". At the camp - Angie and Ash, coming for my birthday all the way from Tuscon, AZ. All was absolutely cool. Great weather. Lots of fun. Talking was awesome. Views are breathtaking. I really don't have time for a report. There was a lot of thinking that had been shared at the campfire. That said, I simply invite you to enjoy the photos.
p.s. I commented on Larry's blog, and thought what I said would be a good closing for my own post. So here it is.
Now I wish we went double...have to go back, I guess:) 40th birthday? Why not? Running is fun. Apparently, I love running. Who would have thought? I really, really do love running. I miss it. I want to be back at it. It's soothing. It's refreshing. It's soul healing. It's meditative. It's adrenaline elevating and endorphin releasing. It's heart rate raising. It puts smile on my face. It works my muscles the best. It allows me to believe in myself. To feel confident. To reach high. To reach out. May be it is not my identity. But it is my passion. And I need it.
Good trip. Lots of processing. And still going on. I love trips like that. They remind me I am living, I am alive, and why. Between awesome nature trails and people who have soul deepness that matches the Grand Canyon - it is priceless.
