Could be a rainy WMRC run 12.14.11

Some running groups may cancel a run do to weather. That would never happen at WMRC. Rain or shine group trail run in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve. Tomorrow morning 5:18 AM. Plan on a little over on hour at a slow to moderate pace.

ROW: the WMRC group runs started over 8 years ago. One of the main goals is to promote trail running an encourage first timers to attempt Ultra Trail Runs. Last weekend Andrew Colbert finished his first 50K at the McDowell Mtn. Frenzy. Nice Job.
Joe Finishing Xterra Trail Run World Championships
The traveler award goes to Joe Galope who runs the Xterra Trail World Championships and Honolulu Marathon both in the same weekend. Poor guy had to go to Hawaii to get those runs done. Then takes a break to watch some Banzai Pipeline Action. Then gets his named pulled for 2012 Western States 100. Some guys have all the luck.

Post Hardrock 100 Selection Run 12.7.11

Tomorrow morning group trail run in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. 5:17 AM top lot of Squaw Peak Drive. Plan on a little over one hour at a slow to moderate pace. Great running weather. Just like a cool summer evening high up in the San Juan Mountains.
Robert Andrulis (far left) Receiving 5 time Hardrock 100 Finisher award
Speaking of the San Juan's The Hardrock 100 selection show was Sunday. Congrats to WMRC runners Robert Andrulis with his automatic bid for being one tough cookie and a 5 time finisher. Also pulled are the two tough ladies Honey Albrecht Liz Everly. All three are taking pacing and crewing applications (proposals). Jamil is on the fringe with a #40 on waiting list. Andrew Heard a little farther back at number 58 (or maybe 68). Once again JJ didn't get his named picked. Make sure you tread lightly around him the next few weeks. Very crabby when he doesn't get his name pulled. Suggestions: Ask him about his dogs and Don't mention Hardrock!! Or what he is doing in July.

ROW: Congrats to the North Face 50 Runners in San Fran. Jamil 40th overall (7:58), Paulette 13th female finisher (9:15), and Jon Roig with a fast 10 hour good for 129th.
