Running to Interbike

Specialized does this crazy thing where they invite a handful of our dealers and employees to ride their bikes from our warehouse in Salt Lake City to Interbike in Las Vegas, Nevada. They ride over mountains, across deserts, and through pouring raining to ultimately collapse 6 days and 600 miles later in the drive way at Mandalay Bay. Sounds awesome, right? I couldn't agree more.

Running on Mars... or in St. George
I don’t have the chops to pull off a ride like this (yet), but I enjoyed a similar adventure as I ran my way to Interbike. Ok, I didn't run every. single. mile. like the kooks on bikes did, but I did get in a freaking sweet trail run at each stop along the way.
By the numbers:
1-muddy tumble
2- Runs in the rain
3- States visited
4- Trails ran
5+ times I thanked my lucky stars I have such an awesome job
17- Mile Ran

Turns out this was a great way to get my run legs back, and the perfect way to kick start my training for the Monterey Bay Half Marathon in November!
