Thursday is the big game between the Sun Devils and the Wild Cats!! Come on out for a group trail run Wednesday morning to discuss Mike Stoops' anger issues and how the Sun Devils will make him blow another gasket. Meet at the very top lot of squaw peak drive in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve Park. Departure time is 5:16AM. Plan on a little over one hour at a slow to moderate pace. Or any pace that you can handle without getting lost.
Runners of the Week: a bunch of hardy runners ran Donovan's Tom Thumb 50K over the weekend. Paul Bonnet won in a course record 5:34 followed by Bourque, Honey (1st female), Deb Hamberlin, Brian soto, Laura Nagy and Hall Gensler. Marathon finishers Jon Woehl, Jerry Portelli, Melissa Masteller. There was some 60K runners too!!! Paul Rondeau, Liz Everly, Jeff Byant and Gary Coronado. Who says wrong turns are bad?
Help the Troops: I know this is short notice but any help would be great. Jeff Jones has organized the following. I'm sure everyone has old cell phones laying around.
Here's two way to help the troops, do them both.
On Wednesday 12/1 bring any and all care package items. Jeff Jones will take it from there and get them delivered through a KPHO TV 5 promotion. You can also give him your goodies at the South Mountain "get together" 50K on Saturday. Care package donation list
Also, if anyone has any old cell phones laying around. Dust that relic off and donate it to a good cause. Over the next 3 WMRC runs give your old phones to Jeff Jones. He'll get them into the right hands so they can be sold and turned into phone minutes for the troops. Below is the link of the charity we will be using. Make sure to purge your phone all all personal data. http://www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com/
