Today's run was fantastic. I started at 4500 feet and topped out at 7591 ft passing Apache Summit and then the last 10 miles or so were downhill where I ended in Ruidoso Downs at around 6700 ft. The mountains, and scenery made the time and the miles fly by.
Somewhere around 14 miles I saw a bridge over Rt 70, where I was running. On the bridge was this sign that said, "Run Patrick Run!" and it had all these foot prints (and one set of hand prints) on it! It was great, and really gave me some motivation to run some more. I took a picture of it but for some reason it didn't save, so I took a picture of it later when it wasn't on the bridge anymore.
After the run, we met up with the Brillantes for dinner. It was really nice to see them again. Their daughter, Fellicie, was diagnosed when she was just a baby! She's doing well and was really great. Gabby, her older sister, is really cool too. She skateboards, so look for her in the X games in a couple years.
Much of the Brillantes extended family came out as well and everyone was so nice.
Good people, good running, good food, good day.
