WMRC9/28- Bear 100 Re Cap

We are on for an easy 1:03 trail run in the PMP tomorrow morning at 5:16 am. This will be an easy pace as many are heading up to Prescott for Man against Horse this weekend.

Runners of the week are too many so it goes to Blue again. Just kidding.

JJ, Steph (pictured above), Lizzie , Andrew, Jody and Mark H all finished the Bear 100 this past weekend. One highlight includes Lizzie falling in a river twice while freezing at night. Andrew said he almost could have ice skated across b/c it was so cold. They were paced by WMRCer's Momo for Steph and Honey for Lizzie. Not sure of the rest.

Great job to all involved in the very successful weekend up there!

See everyone tomorrow morning.

WMRC 9/14

We are on for a nice and relatively easy trail run in the preserve tomorrow morning at 5:16am. We will run up and down and down and up and down for about 5.7 miles in 1:04. This will be fun.

Runner of the week goes to Bill Barthen. He finished the Wasatch 100 miler in 29 hrs this past weekend. This race has an elevation gain of 27,000 ft over the 100 miles and is extremely hard. Well done Bill! This was the final race of the grand slam of 100's for Bill. He finished Western States, Vermont and Wasatch, only dnf'ing in Leadville due to an elevation troll that was hiding in his Camelbak repeatedly beating him over the head, neck and chest with a giant stick of some sort.

See everyone tomorrow morning at 5:16 am- Top lot of SQ PK DR.

Wednesday Reminder / 9.11 Reflection Run

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend even though the heat is still rolling. Reminder: Group trail run in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve tomorrow morning. Meet at the top of Squaw Peak Drive north of Glendale Ave. 5:17 AM. Plan on a little over one hour at a slow to moderate pace.
 9/11 Reflection Run: Sunday is 9/11. A day that our generation will never forget. We are going to meet at at 7:00 AM at Dreamy Draw Parking Lot (exit Northern off SR-51) for the annual "Reflection Run". This is a SLOW run in the preserve up and around red mound. Nothing better than running with a group on this day. Slow pace, good company, be thankful, reflect, look-forward.
