One tough race


Here are my two good friends, Leslie and Florencia. This pic was taken during the CTM 100k race in Ojai California. They finished in 17:21! This was the first running of the Coyote Two Moon race and featured both a 100 mile and a 100k event. Rumor has it that it was very difficult. Congrats to 100 mile winner Karl Meltzer with a winning time of 19:24! Andy Jones-Wilkins was 2nd in 23:48! In the 100k David Groggins won in 12:50! Wow, it sounds like it was an awesome event not to be missed. Congrats to all my friends who had the guts to start and finish this grueling race.

I am keeping up with my training and faithfully doing my push-ups. Getting out the door to do a run alone is the hardest thing for me. Once I am out, it is fine. It's just getting out and on the trail that is so difficult. I need to practice mind over matter. This Saturday I have planned a long run. I hope the weather holds out and that I have some company out on the trail.

Hey Kelly,

Just found your blog. Chris and I are sad you couldn't make it this year -- hopefully next! I think you would love the course.

Sue J., your ex-teammate :)

PS: Your shirt went in the mail today.

Thanks Sue, for stopping by. Yeah, I am sad that I missed the race. It sounds like it was really hard and very well put together. I will have to run it next year. :) I frequently check your blog to catch up on what's happening with you. Hopefully I will see you out on the trails this year.
Happy trails.
