Bear Lake Marathon Idaho - 6/8/2012
Garden City Utah - Day 1
I'm back!  Three marathons in three states in three days!  Day 1 was Bear Lake Idaho and I had the pleasure of seeing Mr. Larry Macon, "Guinness World Record holder of "Most Marathons Run in a Calendar Year by a man.  113 marathons in 2011!  Bear Lake Idaho was my third year and my best.  Why?  It didn't rain! This year had an early start at 4am. I finished Day 1 in 6:23:43

Miles of lake views along the course...

Utah Valley Marathon in Provo Utah this year hosted the Marathon Maniacs reunion.  It was nice to see and meet many Maniacs.  The course was beautiful, fast and scenic. I finished Day 2, 6:12:38

Holcomb Valley Trail Run (33 miles) - 6/10/2012
Big Bear Lake California - Day 3
Day 3 was awesome.  Holcomb Valley Trail Run 33 Miler was held in beautiful Big Bear Lake California.  I was a little afraid of the altitude which was not a problem this year.  I felt strong and full of energy.  The course is a beautiful loop on Forest Service Roads and the Pacific Crest Trail with gorgeous views of Big Bear Lake.  I finished 9:11:50

Ultra Ladies...looking good!
beautiful views...

a pretty rocky crossing...
Thanks Race Director Gary for a race well done!
 I finished 3 marathons (and beyond) in 3 states in 3 days!
