Perseverance.  Focus.  Endurance.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, (2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.)

Deadwood Mickelson Trail Marathon

We had a great time at Deadwood this past weekend. The event started off with the expo on Friday evening. We met many new friends and had some great discussions on running tips and race experiences. After the expo, we then headed to our cabin rental to hang out and experience the woodsy feeling that the Deadwood/Lead area provides.

Then on Saturday things really picked up at the expo. We met even more new friends, as well as talked to friends we met on Friday night. We received a lot of great ideas on different t-shirts you would like to see and we are working on getting those on our website for you. In summary we had a blast at the expo, and many thanks to those that stopped by.

On race day (Sunday), it was nice and sunny and a relatively cool feeling at the start of the race. We lined up for the half marathon with roughly ~3000 other runners. Down the trail we started (or should I say up the trail for the first mile). Then at mile six, there it was, the long steady incline. The angle of the hill isn't too bad, it's just that it goes forever (about a mile). Once at the top of the hill, the rest of the race is pretty much a downhill run, even steep at some points.

All of our runners had a great day and did pretty well. Many thanks to the DMTM crew that put on a great event. If you are looking for a challenging but scenic race, make sure to check it out!
