MONTANE LAKELAND 100 UTLD (103.9 miles, 21,760ft of ascent) Friday July 27th 2012
I am floating through the landscape. I feel the wind caress my body. The sun touches my skin with a tender kiss. The ground beneath my feet narrates earth’s history, with each stone, root & plant holding its own story. Water trickles and meanders through the landscape. I stop to take a sip of nature’s life force and touch the ground around me. I have become one within my environment. I have been stripped of all pretensions. My bare soul has been exposed.
