The results are up! Once again Glenda and company put on a wonderful, true to the bone race for the lucky 100+ of us that got to run that beautiful course Saturday April 21. Personally, I really had a great time in spite of not being in the best shape for it. :) This race was a great reminder and kick in the butt to get back training on the hills! With Hardrock only a few weeks away the time is now to put together some decent training.
A unique touch to this race is the previous winners board that lives about 15 miles into the race on the Pacific Crest Trail. For me, it was very special that my name is on that board. Don Hughes hikes out there each year after the race, removes the board, takes it home to hand carve the new additions and paint them white before returning the board to it resting place near the bench dedicated to Mr. Kimmerly who founded the race 16 years ago. Running by that and catching the white paint with my name definitely put a boost in my stride and a smile on my face.
Thank you, Thank you Glenda and Dennis! It was once again spectacular!
