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.

Have fun!

  1. Our son drove through Montana, and he said it is a BIG state. I really like your idea of running to Kathy’s home. It adds so much to the story when you say where you are and write something about the area. If a person were home-bound and longed to travel, that would be a fun way to experience places.

    1. It has been neat to travel this way as I have never been in this area before. It also gets my butt out the door for runs:)
