Scott Pearson (HF18577) – Completed my 25th half marathon today. Not a new state, but a beautiful race that I have been wanting to do for awhile. Mickelson Trail Half in Deadwood SD.
It was appropriate that I was running it with Jeff Walls as he talked me into running my first Half Marathon and ran that with me.
I told him he was on the hook now to run my 50th with me in a couple of years. This was a very beautiful race. It runs on a trail through the Black hills. It is mostly downhill with a couple of minor upward inclines.
There were a couple of tricky downhill spots as the trail was pretty wet. It is a race I will run again sometime. We had a minor sprinkle in the middle and a pretty good rain at mile 12. But otherwise really good race weather.
