I can’t believe it has been a year since I started this journey!

At the start of 2020 I was lost as to what my running goal would be for the year. I had done speed, distance, etc. Then the amazing Kathy suggested that I run to visit her. So off I went to Rapid City. You can tell I don’t run as much as many people out there as it’s a new year and I am still working on this goal of visiting Kathy.

I have hit Busby, Montana. This is a census location located on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. It is only 20 miles to the site of the Battle of Rosebud Creek. The history nerd in me is really curious as to what the National Battle Site park will be like as I have never seen one before. I took a course in university about the US Civil War, but of course, I don’t remember much:(

This is quite the change from my last stop in Billings, Montana as only about 745 people live here. It was named for the Post master , Sheridan Busby when the post office was established here in 1904.

The town is located on Rosebud Creek.

I guess I will rest here and then keep on going as I really do feel as though I’ve seen the whole place. Of course, you could blink and miss it😜

    1. I’m glad you like them. The goal definitely gets me out the door! I’m not sure what we’ll do, but I’ll definitely be checking out her garden and her sewing room!

  1. I managed to run from Land’s End to John O’Groats between mid July 2020 and the end of March! I got a bit fed up with it though, as I had to submit my mileage by hand, with a screenshot from strava, which got tedious! I love your posts about your challenge!

    1. Oh wow that would be annoying! I keep track this year of all workouts, yoga and runs in a book so just have to add my total to last years.
      Thank you!

    1. I only found a photo of the information kiosk at the battlefield and it wouldn’t zoom in enough for me to read it:(
      I think I have about 500km left so it will still be a while:(
      A zoom talk is a great idea, thank you!
