South Dakota Running: Badlands and Lewis & Clark Park
We're in the Badlands National Park today! It was overcast when I took that picture, but the dark skies didn't take away from the beauty of the layered rocks and canyons. We saw buffalo and antelope yesterday. Today, I saw a coyote during my hilly run in the rain that was cut short to 4 miles because of a lightning storm.

The camp sites at the Badlands are so cramped that an RV ran into our awning while driving by today. There doesn't seem to be a day that goes by that something doesn't break! Still, we're having a great vacation. Just look at the mountain views!

I signed up for my 17th marathon - the Missoula Marathon held on July 12. I ran a 20 mile training run on Sunday at the Lewis and Clark Park on a 4 mile asphalt trail along the lake. Cytomax drink kept me going with no tummy troubles like I thought it had caused before. I was glad that my legs felt better than they did the day before when I ran 7 miles after riding in the RV all day. Afterwards, my husband and I took our Weimaraner over to the lakeside beach for a swim.

In case you missed the add-on to my last post, here's my husband's post about the alpaca farm where we stayed because we're Harvest Host members. Check it out if you want to see me shear a llama. That visit was on our second and third day of our RV trip from our home in Texas to Canada and it was truly an adventure.
