Venture Friends

Saturday was the Jim Bridger Trail Run. I took it upon myself a couple of months ago to encourage a bunch of my friends to run it with me. There ended up being 6 of us that ran this 10 mile trail race. Which was a lot more than the 3 of us who ran […]

Trail Runs and Goodbyes

Trail Runs 1

I have been hitting up the near by trails lately and loving it. Several people have been trying to get me to run more trails over the last several years, but I always felt like it was a bigger time commitment. It takes at least 15-30 minutes to drive to the nearest trail and can […]

Trail Head

Hell Roaring Creek trail is an easy hike in the Gallatin canyon. The trail head is between the Storm Castle and Lava Lake trails on the west side of the canyon. The hike take a couple of switchbacks up to a ridge. The switchbacks are long and easy, but a little muddy in the spring. […]

Night Out 6

Tonight I went out with a couple girl friends for a fun night of just wandering around downtown Bozeman. We decided to a photography night although one of our friends forgot her camera. We had a good night catching up, laughing and checking out the first Farmer’s Market of the year. Here are a few […]

Vacation for Two!

Vacation 19

As you all know a couple weeks back Brent and I took a vacation to Colorado for my marathon. Running a marathon is also a really good excuse to take a vacation. In the past, we have gone to Portland and spent the non-marathon days with the Powell family. We have gone to Nashville and […]

We had a great trip through Moab. We arrived late Tuesday night and tried to find a place to rest, but the campgrounds were full and we settled in in a parking lot off the highway. We converted the Outback to sleep mode and settled in for the night. It was an uncomfortable night. That […]

The Denver Zoo

While in Denver a couple weeks back, we had the opportunity to visit the Denver Zoo. It’s been a while since either of us had an opportunity to go to one, so it was a treat. As is par for the course, I had my camera with me. Enjoy the pictures!

Supporting Shots

While Jess has taken heartily to the life of a marathon runner, I have enjoyed my role as the support crew. My roles include motivational speaking, hydration preparation and handling, “relaxed pace” running partner and documenting specialist. On this particular race day, I had ample time to work as a photographer. I had two opportunities […]

Colfax Marathon…check!

Posted on May 20th, 2014 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

After an awesome anniversary day on Saturday (our 6th), Brent and I headed back to the hotel early to get some shut eye. I iced my heel again to try and get it to feel a bit better, I set out my racing gear and we made our final plans for the morning. With an […]

Only two days away!

Posted on May 16th, 2014 by Jess Life Run/Hike/Bike

I am sitting on a bed at a hotel in Casper, Wyoming icing my ankle as I wait for Brent to finish working. Soon it is off to Denver! Why am I icing my ankle when the marathon is on Sunday? Well, last week I was helping set up for our church service as normal. […]
