2015 Whispering Pines Trail Run: Thank You, Results, and Pics

WP15_FBResults

Cowbells were ringing.

Clapping and Woot!’n as another one of the WP tribe popped out of the woods. Looking for bib numbers to call out to our timing team.
Having to say each bib number just a bit louder than usual as the hum and energy of the tribe cheering on those they knew and those they didn’t, was overpowering
my voice…and I was lovin’ it.

Bottle being filled, calories being consumed, a pat on the back, a warm smile, more Trail Toes and Body Glide applied.

Great energy was radiating out of the Whispering Pines start/finish area and throughout Tyler State Park as we shared this adventure together.

A special thanks to all our amazing volunteers rockin’ it before sunrise and all the way to bring in our final Tough as Nails runner at 5:20pm!

A special thanks to all our partners – Tyler State Park, Hammer Nutrition, Nature Nate’s, Cowbells.com, Movin’ Pictures, and Road ID.

A special thanks to YOU for sharing your awesomeness and spending the day together playing in the woods and eating M&Ms.

We hope you took home a few memories!

2014 Isle du Bois Trail Run Results and Pics

idb2014_resultsFB

“Do. Enjoy. Be willing to learn.” – Wayne Dyer

Our amazing community of runners from 10 to 72 years of age came together to run, explore, play, support each other, and then enjoy a taco while talking about it afterwards.

Seeing this age spread brings smiles and watery eyes (fyi – I am so tired, seeing a falling leaf may bring me to tears.  )

While a few runners arrive at the start line to push their limits, others are there to enjoy a supported hike in a beautiful natural environment. Most fit somewhere in-between.

Yet within this rainbow of individual reasons for lacing them up race morning, I sensed this common underlying theme…

To do.

To enjoy.

And maybe even, be willing to learn.

Thank YOU for bringing such positive energy and light to our trail running adventures. We do hope it was an “experience” filled will a collection of memories.

We have to thank our amazing volunteers who carry the spirit of EBA throughout the day supporting YOU with their time, energy, compassion, and support. Huge!

I have to thank my wingman, Tyler Greenhaw and his family, for all their behind the scenes and race-day support. They handmade all the clay medals on your honey bears!

A huge thanks to my wife, Wendy and my two munchkins (Griffin and Ainsley), for supporting this idea of putting on special trail running experiences in north Texas. Wendy is the magic behind packet pickup, aid station checkpoint details, race day food management and whatever else needs to be done. This wouldn’t happen without her! Griffin loves to be quality control at all the aid stations and Ainsley loves the kids run. She was talking about it all race morning and kept saying she didn’t want to miss it.

Thanks to our partners whom we have worked with us for a number of years and have believed in our vision: Isle duBois state park, Hammer Nutrition,Nature Nate’s, cowbells.com, Rick Merriam of Engaging Muscles, Road ID, and Movin’ Pictures.

Isle du Bois was our first race back in 2011. Today EBA stands at 14 completed events and at each one of them I had the honor of welcoming everyone, from the first to the final runner across the finish line. That’s a lot of high-5s and honey bears!

Thank YOU for your involvement with our tribe. We really do appreciate you.

Have a wonderful rest of 2014 and we would be honored to see you again in 2015.

Stay awesome!

Isle du Bois Trail Run: Close Lodging Option

Hey IDB Tribe,

Not interested in camping but want to be within 10 minutes of the race site?

Check out the Lantana Resort (within Pilot Point).

You get free entry to the Isle du Bois state park during your stay. While runners already get free entry on race day, this could be nice for family and friends.

A mini-bonus, if 10 or more rooms are book under “IDB trail race”, you all will receive $5 off your room rate. That’s like one fancy coffee, 4 7-11 coffees, 4 gels, or 30-60+ miles of driving.

Happy Running!

peace

Dave
