Beautiful running weather on the Osage reservation north-west of Tulsa this weekend. To keep our "doubler streak" alive, Claire and I ran a slightly puny 10K trail race on Saturday and then the more demanding Marathon on Sunday. Apart from an inconveniently broken collar bone Claire sustained just before the event last year, we've run two back-to-back races each year for every edition of this wonderful, low-key event. Great volunteers, food, music, trails, and a warm lodge (with real bathrooms) to wait in before walking all of 20 yards to the start line. We both managed 10K age group wins on Saturday, and finished unscathed and ready for Sunday's marathon.
We both enjoyed our 26.2, over mainly dry, rocky trails and hilly roads. Here's a pic of our Sunday age group trophies - guess who won what? (hint: Claire's smiling a lot today)
A great, laid back set of Oklahoma races - definitely two thumbs up.
