24 HoT

It was an amazing weekend of camping, swimming, laughing, friends, family and running.  Thanks to Brian for making it happen and to all the FCTRs (76+ participants) for coming out and making this event what it was.  I managed 7 trips up and down our favorite hill which on my watch gave me 52 miles and nearly 12,000 feet of vertical.  I did lap 5 with my wonderful son Micah for his first trip up to the Towers- he loved it!  Lap 7 which started at 11:30 pm and finished at 3:30 am was run/hiked with my beautiful wife Ean.  Shadow did two laps (1 & 5).  I am so glad to be part of a group of people that are happy to come out and spend a day and a night running up and down a big hill together in the heat of summer.

Some highlights of the day in pictures:
