My friends Jen and Dave joined me for the marathon run at Joshua Tree National Park back on December 14, 2016. We had a blast running an out and back on the California Riding and Hiking Trail from Ryan Campground. Dave and I did the entire 26.2 miles and Jen did her first run over 20 miles! She overdid it a bit though and ended up with a fired up I.T. band. No matter though it was a blast through the desert. So happy they could join me.
