At the start of this year, I was having trouble getting out the door for runs as I just didn’t have a goal. I had already done a speed goal and a distance goal and I didn’t know what to do now. As a goal person, I don’t work very well without a goal.
Then the lovely Kathy gave me the idea of running virtually to visit her in South Dakota. Well that did the trick!
Last month I had made it to Big Timber, Montana and this month I am just outside Columbus, Montana.
I have not actually reached the town, so I have stopped at a local ranch/farm for a rest.
Columbus Montana looks to be pretty close to the centre of Montana when I look at the map. The estimated population is just over 2,000 people. This town was originally a stagecoach stop called Sheep Dip. I’m sure the people of the town are happy the name changed.
This town was home to a professional poker player named Annie Duke and the birth place of professional football player Dwan Edwards. I always find it amazing all the people who come from tiny, unknown towns.
I think I’m getting close to Billings so hopefully I will make it there in the next month.
