It was an early start to July 4th this morning as Cristal was signed up to do the 10k ‘Friends of Pathways’ annual run down in the village—Wilson. This has been an annual event here for some 35 years, and there were about 217 participants this year including walkers and juniors. Since Cristal plans on running a half-marathon in September, running this at altitude now that she is back living at sea level was a great practice run—and she managed to knock three minutes off her previous 10K time, eight minutes less than her last 10K race in November.

She tells me it was a beautiful running course: how can it not be here in the Tetons? We stayed on for a raffle, though were unsuccessful in winning anything, and I was also unsuccessful in trying to nap afterward. Still, I don’t think I’ll have any problem staying awake through the rodeo this evening and fireworks!

Hope y’all are having a great July 4th!
