Jedidiah Smith State Park is my favorite place 

I ran the trail

Perfect Fall day here in Kansas

Ran it in Cambridge, WI. Beautiful fall day here to think of the amazing Redwoods!  

Thank you so much for setting up the virtual run! It’s one on my favorites to run through the park. Looking forward to next year! 

85 and sunny in South Texas

I walked the Virtual 5k in downtown Eau Claire, WI on a beautiful fall day.

Our favorite 5k!

Sunny run fit perfectly in between rainy morning and cloudy afternoon!

Ran the Prairie Creek route - still smoky, but sunny and beautiful!

I had to run the virtual race indoors on my treadmill because of the unhealthy air quality this weekend here at my home in the Trinity Alps. 

Loved following along on the video and the mini ranger talks.

Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy the park.  It was beautiful.  Thank you to the awesome runner that carried that gimbal and camera while running.  You are amazing.

My community in Santa Rosa, California was just able to return home this week after an eight-day mandatory evacuation due to a wildfire – the Glass fire. The fire hit very close to home-again- causing a great deal of destruction, albeit far less than in 2017. Today, I was able to walk the 5K and be grateful for the beauty that surrounds me. I've included one photo of the destruction that is visible from my neighborhood where I started and ended my walk.
