Reminder: We are on for a group trail run Wednesday Morning (tomorrow) 5:14 AM in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. Meet at the very top lot of Squaw Peak Drive (past Piestewa Peak trailhead). Plan on a little over one hour at a slow to moderate pace. The days are hot but the mornings are beautiful. Don’t miss out. Runner of the week: Yes, he is an original WMRC’er. Yes, he is reclusive. Yes, he has been call Mr. Snuffleupagus. Yes, he is still running. Congratulations to Art Bourque for his 5:33:00 time at the Bear Mountain 50K in upper New York. Bear Mountain is part of the North Face Endurance Challenge and is touted as the most difficult 50K and 50 mile race east of the Mississippi River. Art overcame lots of rain, mud and rocks to finish 5th overall. Art, you have to show up Wednesday for your reward:)
Props to Honey and Kirk who did a quick trip to the Canyon and did a R2R2R. They took bright angel/NK both ways and said it was very hot and they were worked. Honey is going back again this weekend for another round of punshipment.
Good luck to Cosmas, Heard, and Jamil Coury who are running the Jemez 50 mile race this weekend in the Mountains of New Mexico.
