Running for the Fallen – September Edition

Fall is in the air. We hit the mid 20s for a low last night here in Rawlins. Back home in Sheridan they were hit with the lovely white fluffy stuff.

I keep praying to wake up to snow.

Every time I mention to someone that I am racing in Billings this month their first comment is “oh boy its going to be cold.” My response is usually something along the lines of “couldn’t be any worse than February.” That was a cold race. Those are the races though where it takes more to be a spectator than a racer.

I am honoring 3 men we lost last year. Please continue to pray for their families as I know hearts still continue to heal.

Daniel Hall was 47 at the time of his death. He was working on the Springboard Fire last October when he was struck by a falling tree.
