SATURDAY is the PALO DURO CANYON TRAIL RUN: I’m going this Saturday to Palo Duro Canyon for a 20k (12.5 mile) run. It’ll be a monster of a run because 99% of it will be on dirt trails and up and down hills. Last time I ran this race it was only 9 miles, but it ran like it was much more. Now they’ve added 3 more miles. I hope I haven’t bitten off more than I can chew.
Also, the last time I ran this race an Indian showed up. You know, an actual Indian with head-dress, moccasins, face paint and loin cloth (the whole outfit). It was like he just appeared from out of the past. I kept a sharp eye on him the first 100 yards and then he took off like a rabbit and left me like I was standing still. When the race was over and I was standing near the finish line, I looked up and saw him just coming in to finish a good 20 minutes after me. I never went around him, so I had to go and ask him, “What happened!” He said, “I got lost for an hour.” I SO wanted to say, “Dude, you’re an Indian, you’re not supposed to get lost,” but decided it would be better if I just kept my mouth shut.
SUNDAY IN AMARILLO: On Sunday I’m going to spend the day speaking for the Comanche Trails church. It’s the congregation that my Mom & Dad worship with. The Comanche Trail’s church is having a big Friend’s Day. If you’re in Amarillo (or close by), I hope you’ll stop by to see me Sunday.
Here are a few pictures from the canyon and last year’s trail run.
