Rim to Rim

I have wanted to do this Rim to Rim race the last few years. Being that Twin Falls - where the race is, is nearly a 2 hour drive from Boise, I never wanted to spring for a hotel or get up early to make the drive race morning. Since fate is different this year, I was able to be in the area when the race is being held!

The BF & I went to scope out the race start the evening before. This area is all new to me!


Blue Lakes really are blue lakes

The canyon
UP the rim!



First male & female to the top wins $100!

Oh, look. A BED at the top of the canyon rim!


A found a dime right about here and carried it in my hand the whole rest of the race

I LOOOVE downhills!


The bridge I just crossed


Why are people walking here? It's safe & I REALLY wanted to run!

NOT DEEP HERE!

Finish line Noms.
I REALLY enjoyed this race. I think the race to the top was won in 6 minutes or so. Totally fast. The male and female that won the top $100 also won the race also! The BF really wants me to train harder so I can win it next year. We will see, but that is why I signed him up for a race too! If he wants me to win, he can win also! I want to do this race again next year!
