Shannon & Pam, after months of training, officially became ultrarunners with finishing Way Too Cool 2010 (3/13/10). They continue to run the long distances as they continue to challenge themselves physically & mentally. This is where they post those triumphs and also their tribulations.

Auburn to Cool

What a day! Fabulous run, tough but well worth it. We started with the group at the ADO heading out alittle before 8am and it was COLD. Started with a nice long downhill and fun run to the NHB, then the pain started :) Training hill (K2) was a bear as expected, this picture doesn't do it justice:

Finally at the top, we headed left towards cool. The run got even more beautiful as we headed around and back towards Auburn.

We almost took a wrong turn up another steep hill, but a wonderful horse woman pointed us in the right direction. Then Jennifer and Diane came running by and lead us back. Here's Shannon heading up a steep portion of the trail, she looks like an angel!

We finished off with a great meal at the South Pine Cafe. Took an ice bath for 10 minutes followed by a shower and a nap. This is one of many tough runs to come, but I know we'll get stronger with each one.  Thank you Diane for pulling us both thru today!

  1. Awesome pics! I'm sore today and will be going to see Dr. Steve today!

    Yes, this is the first of many tough runs, but that which does not kill us only makes us stronger!
