Late afternoon sky...10-8-15. We arrived about 4:30.
Late afternoon sky above the main urt where all the business of the institute goes on,
and where we have race meetings and eat our meals. It is where I go to wait on him :-)
It is the only area where there is wifi for the participants to use.
The sunset was beautiful.
Here it is getting a bit darker.
And finally... that last little bit of a red glow.
This is the first bit of sky we saw looking up through the circle in the roof
of our yurt ceiling. You definitely do not sleep in late with all of this light coming in your room.
Today it is is pouring rain...actually a torrential downpour. Poor Bud.
He must be miserable. This is a tough marathon, and he is trying to run it after months of treatments on the bad hip. We shall see. I’ve got my fingers crossed. For the first time, I did not go with him for the start of the race, but here he is ready to leave the yurt for 10 hours of running. I hope he makes it.
OK, Genie...I’m ready to hit the trail.
