The Hills Are Alive

Early in June, ChaseDesign’s David Aureden and 10Red Design’s Michael Vine treated themselves to the Gorges Ithaca Half Marathon, hilly but beautiful, with a downtown Ithaca staging, passing through Fall Creek, along the Waterfront Trail at the base of Cayuga Lake, up to majestic Cayuga Heights and the scenic Cornell University campus.


Dave (shown above left) notes, “It was easier than last year (we didn’t go ALL THE WAY to the top of the Cornell campus). Beautiful Day, beautiful course, and really nice to be able to run it with Mike. And, of course, Byrne Dairy Chocolate Milk is the best way to recover from 13.1!!”

Mike adds, "I agree! This was my first 'You mean I can actually run in shorts and a t-shirt while listening to my music and not have to worry about my phone freezing up and having snowballs forming on my eyelashes?' half marathon."

(Photos suggest that the rehydration regimen included other beverages as well.)
