Fall is for cross country ultra running!

So many of our Alberta courses are mountain courses. Which I love of course! But it’s so pleasant once in a while to XC across long damp grass and open spaces.

After Black Spur Ultra 108k In August I went on the San Juan bike trip then did Lost Soul (Lethbridge AB) (100 miler, DNF at 123k) and Iron Horse Ultra 100k (St. Paul, AB). Coulees, cactus, porcupines, farmers’ fields, cows, prickles, brambles, fall foliage. Ahhh. I come back to these events year after year, for the scenery and friendship of like-minded people.

It rained this year so the skies were clouded, but at Iron Horse 2014 we watched the aurora…
