Post RNR trail run 1/19/11

Reminder: Group trail run in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve tomorrow morning 5:17 AM. Meet at the usual place. Very top of Squaw Peak drive north of Glendale / Lincoln. Plan on a little over one hour at a slow to moderate pace.

Runner of the Week: 4 months ago WMRC runners Steve Ward, Chris Harrison and Dave Westhoff were on a Marathon training run with their good friend Gregg Alpert. After the run Gregg died unexpectedly from cardiac arrest. To honor their friend, Steve, Chris and Dave ran the PF Chang's marathon Sunday carrying Gregg's bib number and timing chip symbolically finishing the race and recording a finish time. Well done men!

Congrats to all the others who ran and finished the Marathon. Also a special note to Laura Nagy who keeps the Mt. Ord Marathon run alive. Sounds like a good group had great time Saturday. Snow up on top.
