Queenstown Marathon

Another marathon, another country completed.  And what a beautiful marathon it was!  The forecast was for rain but we got very lucky and it was just cloudy, a few drops of rain and a bit of wind.  The temperature was actually quite perfect for running. I was quite slow as usual but finished well before the time limit.  The entire trip in New Zealand was amazing and it is a very beautiful and also peaceful country. I loved being there, far away from all of the political strife going on here in the US.
The medal was lovely.

The scenery was incredible along the entire course.

Twin Peaks Trail

A wintry hike on Twin Peaks Trail with beautiful views of Eklutna Lake.  Some snow on the trail and grippers on the shoes badly needed.  An absolutely gorgeous hike!
