WMRC run reminder 10/15/08

Reminder: Group trail run in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve Wednesday morning 5:15 AM. Meet at the top lot of Squaw Peak Drive north of Glendale. Plan on a little over a one-hour run at a slow to moderate pace.

Another great weekend for WMRC runners.

Even though the event wasn’t on trails we have to give Latvaaho Runner Of The Week for his performance during the Ironman Triathlon championship in Kona, Hawaii. He’s not the fastest fish in the ocean but when you get him to land watch out. Chris passed 780 people on the bike ride. Then he goes out and passes 223 people during the run for a marathon time of 3:09:33 good for a 168th place overall. 30th in his division. WOW.

Other honorable notes:

Dave Cauthon ran a double dip this weekend. The 7 mile Cha Cha trail run on Saturday then the 17 mile Mazatzals on Sunday.

Other notables on the Cha Cha finishers list: Adam Hunt, Sandra Fontaine and Candice. Great job guys and gals.

Mazatzals: Nick Coury, Paul Bonnett and Andrew Heard finish 1,2,3. Gary Culver, Dave C, Robert A, Liz Everly, Rachel Jones, Michael Chen and Joanne Hughes finished right behind

Special thanks to Jody Chase for taking the extra time cleaning up base camp after she finished marking the course.

TAW – Thug Apprehension of the Week: As the story goes, Michael C..n (witness protected) stopped at a Circle K to ask directions on his way over to the Jones’ house to carpool with RJ, Liz. Two thugs followed him and tried to rob him at gunpoint. He mashed the gas pedal to the floor and sped away. Moments later RJ, Liz and Michael were at Starbucks getting drinks for the road and guess what? The two thugs like starbucks too! Michael calmly asked an employee to call the police and presto the thugs were arrested!!!

Lastly, congratulations to those that went to the Cardinals football game and had to deal with Cowboy fans. Cards fans had the last laugh and took it to them!!!
