Blizzard like conditions, two feet of snow, below zero temperature. Or 55 degrees under clear skies. The latter sounds more appealing for a trail run and that's what we have in Phoenix. Lets eat it up. Group trail run tomorrow in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve. 5:17 AM at the end of squaw peak drive trail head. Plan on a little over one hour at a slow to moderate pace.
Over the weekend we lost a long time WMRCer and running partner. Jeff and Rachel had to put down Kopol. Kopal lived a wonderful 12 years. He was strong, friendly and a great runner. He had the best owners a dog could have. Just last year the 11 year old Kopol ran the rugged Cave Creek Trail Marathon. Check out the footage below and the Kopol Blog. RIP Kopol!!!
Also, a shout out to the McDowell Mountain Frenzy runners. 50K Paulette (1st place Female), Joe G (top 10), Mark Hellenthal. 25K Albert Shank (6th), Jon Roig, Laura Encinas (2nd female, Lisa Osinga. Please let us know if we missed any WMRCer!! We want to know!
