WMRC - February 1

We're on for a trail run in the mountain preserves in the morning. Departing at 5:16 a.m. at the top of Squaw Peak Drive. An apology goes out from Blue Dog who's initial pace split the group up and had various runners scattered all over the park. The pace will be a steady, group friendly run through the preserve. Come one, come all.

WMRC 1/25


We are on for a 5.89 mile trail run at 5:17 am tomorrow morning. Blue will be leading and he is feeling a bit ornery.

Congrats to all WMRCer's that got into the San Diego 100. That is going to be a fun weekend.

Runner of the week goes to Perry Edinger, old school WMRCer that got 11th place in the Coldwater Rumble 31K over the past weekend. The Coury brothers continue to put on quality events. Thanks guys!

We are doing new shirts in the next couple weeks, They will be North Face Tech shirts with the WMRC/iRun logo. iRun will be underwriting the shirts, so the cost per shirt is $6.00. White, Black, Grey and Orange are the options. Stay tuned.....

See everyone tomorrow morning.

WMRC 1/11/12

Let's do an easy trail run this Wednesday morning at 5:16am. Due to some heavy racing last weekend and this coming weekend we will be taking it easy, I promise, Blue.

Runner of the week goes to a few people worthy of this. First, Jay Danek busted a good time at Bandera 100k over the weekend in Texas throwing down a 10:30 for 16th place overall.

Nick Coury blew everyone away at the Castle Hot Springs 22 miler this weekend. Running a 2:40 that is equivalent to a full marathon. My quads are still sore from pounding all those downhills. Matt Schmidt and Nathan Coury also smoked that thing as well.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend, see you out on the trails soon (Wed).

First run of 2012!

Ring in the new year with a run this Wednesday morning for 5-something mile run for just over an hour through the trails of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. We depart at 5:17 a.m. from the top of Squaw Peak Drive.

Runner of the week goes to Debbie Leftwich for running 104 miles this past weekend at the Across the Years 24-hour run, placing her 3rd woman, 5th overall. Also deserving special mention is Robert Andrulis for running 169 miles, and James Bonnett running 134 miles in the 72 hour event.
