The Oil Creek 100 Trail Runs is less than three weeks away.
My favorite nut jobs are training for it with a fine blend of hills, trails and mental insanity.
I love that they don't seem to care how hard something is going to be. I love that their passion for running totally overrules any sense of sanity they may once have had.
Mud, cliffs, bears, unspeakable pain as the miles wear on into the night
. . . so many great subjects to take pictures of. I can hardly wait!
The photo of you guys being chased through the woods by an angry bear is going to be awesome! Good luck and have a great run!

Speaking of trail races, the Cannibal (last year’s Nut Job of the Year) sent me a link to what looks to be a future nut job favorite trail race.
