What you really want is the medal

It was a loop course through the Gallatin National Forest which, for a non-trail runner, was challenging but very beautiful. There were plenty of aid stations well-stocked with wonderful volunteers and port-a-potties. They had a very nice snack box at the end and the volunteer fished out an extra cold chocolate milk for me.The shirt is best tech tee I've ever received, a beautiful hunter green with a classy design.But what you really want is the medal. That -ish is ridiculous!
