WMRC Run reminder 10/27

The 2010 Javelina 100-mile run is in the books. Arizona’s largest ultra was another great success, produced by Nick and Jamil. The event had a large WMRC turnout with the gang either running, pacing, crewing, volunteering, spectating or burning the midnight oil at an aid station. Congratulations to everyone who was a part of it.

Come out and join us for a Wednesday morning run on the trails at 5:15 a.m. at the top of Squaw Peak Drive. It’s guaranteed to be easier than last week (because I can’t imagine it being any harder).

Cool Wednesday Morning Run Reminder

Come run with some cool people and some not so cool people on the Wednesday morning trail run from the top of Squaw Peak drive. A moderately paced one hour trot over hill and dale departing from the parking lot at 5:15 a.m.

A bunch of cool people went and did a double crossing of the Grand Canyon this past weekend. I wasn’t one of them, so I’m not cool. Instead I rode my bike up and down the Beeline Hwy. three times past the garbage dump. Fun! The cool people consisted of Paul R., Donovan, Honey, Liz, Jeremy and Anthony. Anthony did a whole bunch more extra miles, just enough for him to have a close encounter with God. Runner of the week goes to Paul R. who completed the double crossing for his first time. Well done!

WMRC Run reminder - 10/13

Another week, and another illustrious day for run out on the trails. Come join us for an hour or so jaunt through the mountain preserve starting at the top of Squaw Peak drive, departing at 5:15 a.m.

Kudos to Honey and Debbie for race directing the Mazatzals Trail Run (a.k.a. mini-Zane Grey). Runners of the week go to Jamil and Laura for their glorious victories on Sunday at Matazals. Lots of WMRC’ers also running included Nick, Paul, Jon, Paulette and Jeremy.

Congratulations to Chris Latvaaho at the Kona Ironman World Championship this past Saturday. After swimming 2.4 miles, biking 112 miles (averaging 22 mph) he ran a 3:18 marathon to close out the day finishing 40th in his division. Well done!

Summer is over celebration run

Summer is over! Come join us for a run on the trails with a dozen of your best friends! 5:16 a.m. at the top of Squaw Peak Drive.

Congratulations to everyone that ran Man Against Horse up in Prescott over the weekend. Honey, Jamil, Nick, Joanne (first woman overall) and Jon R. all ran solid performances. I haven’t seen results yet, so apologies to anyone that I may have missed. Runner’s of the week go out to Paul Randeau who completed his first 50-miler at Man Against Horse, and also to Debbie Leftwich who ran her SIXTEENTH 100-miler at Arkansas 100. She was 7th woman overall.

Last month, Jody went to Europe to run the Ultra-Trail de Monte Blanc and put together this nice video of her adventure.
