Today was the best run ever! I ran my favorite 5 mile run around Colleen Lake here in Deadhorse. But it was 72 degrees out with just the right amount of breeze to make it feel wonderful. I ran faster than I have in a long time too. I passed two guys running in the opposite direction so I am not the only one to discover this North Slope paradise. I did get a slight hassle from some guy in a BP truck. Warning me of the dangers of trucks and that there were bears everywhere! I've been running that road for 5 years and have yet to see a bear. But I know there are some around but since it is so open, I would hardly come upon one and surprise them. If I see one I will simply turn around and run the opposite direction. I stick to the side of the road so the trucks are hardly an issue. It was a gorgeous day to be outside in the sunshine. I took this photo with my cell phone along the way.
