Congratulations Art and Mieko!

Most of us in the club have run many parts of the 70 mile Backbone Trail. Sometimes it is hard to get a perspective of the whole trail when done in short segments at different times. Art and Mieko have a pretty good picture of the trail that runs from Will Rogers to Ray Miller. This year, in 3 consecutive days, they ran the entire trail. January 2 they ran 25 miles from Will Rogers to Tapia, then January 3, 26 miles from Tapia to Mishe Mokwa, and finally on January 4th, the last 16 miles from Mishe Mokwa to Ray Miller. When they came down the Ray Miller trail to the finish, they were both smiling from ear to ear, and you could feel the glow of accomlishment--Couldn't happen to two nicer people.
