Julie Olson & Mike Blair ran or walked the Advocate Safehouse Project’s "Mother’s Day Mile"

Julie sent me these photos of Mike & her at the Advocate Safehouse Project’s Mother’s Day Mile. They had 747 walkers/runners at the race and are now the 2nd largest foot race in the Roaring Fork Valley (Aspen to Parachute). (Do any of you know where Parachute, Colorado is? I didn't think so.) They raised over $17,000! All participants received a piece of home-made pie plus a rose.

Matt Knott runs 30K - "Don't Fence Me In Trail Run"!

Matt Knott sent me the following pictures. He ran a 30K (18.6 Miles) run on May 9th. The race was called the "Don't Fence Me In Trail Run." 7 others from his fire crew ran it also. The race is on trails right out of Helena. It starts about 3900 ft and hits about 5200 feet. He finished in 2 hours 40 minutes 55 seconds and placed 13th overall and 4th in his age group. He said "I guess endurance must be an Olson trait. I know I look goofy in the pics but fire season is just around the corner and it is always a competition to see who can get the craziest facial hair."
