Last week Wednesday a group of 25 showed up to do the Gym / Cave route. Fun had by all. The Runner of the Week goes to Jim Fowler aka "Grandpa Jim" for his group best 17 pull-ups. I hear he didn't want to show off and add a few claps in between.

Runner of the week goes to Melisa "Momo" Angelone. She rocked the Whiskey Row marathon in Prescott this past weekend. She is also early leader for WMRC newcomer of the year. Momo shows up every week, smile on her face, ready to tackle the trails. While she does like to do races as evidenced by her multiple Ironman finishes, I think she just likes to train and run with friends on the trails and that is what this group is about. It also doesn't hurt to wear such a cool shirt if you want to impress the committee.
Runner up goes to the JJ, Paul R, Bill Barthen and Steph B crew that went up and ran across the big hole in the earth known as the GC double crossing. Great job, below is the video of the event. If you ever have the opportunity to do this run with a group, do it.James, Jamil and Nick are heading up to the canyon today to run, that may be a little faster than most of us want to go. Have fun kids, be safe.
Good luck to Kirk in the Texas Ironman this weekend.See everyone tomorrow morning.

Runners of the week goes out to the Coury boys and crew the ran/scrambled the Pariah Canyon this past weekend. Check out the pics on Facebook.
Runner up goes to Blue Dog who has been dominating the canal lately. He opened up a running store for dogs and has been holding group runs on the canal and chasing ducks and small birds for his tempo workouts. iSlobber is on Indian School and 48th st right next to iRun.
This weather is perfect so if there was ever a time to make it back to the group, time is now.
See everyone tomorrow.
