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.

Weekend recap

The weekend was a whirlwhind, went by way too quickly. Got outside for a 2 miler on Saturday, then Sunday ran the 11.5 mile race from Beals Point. It was alittle cold, rainy, muddy, but really a fantastic run. We took our time, enjoyed ourselves, splashed thru puddles and tried not to fall into them. Sadly, there was no Rubios for us since we were last, but we had the party food to look forward to.  Sunday evening headed over to Linda's house in Cool for the FTR party. Had a great time with everyone and ate too many of Rene's snowball cookies :( It was such a great weekend!  Oh, Shannon gave me a great gift, white arm warmers! I love them and can't wait to use them :)

Today our group (4) ran from the Sterling Pointe Staging area. I have found my new favorite trail. Janet, a new member, who is a major ultrarunner, met up with us to show us the way. She was an absolute delight to run with. I picked her brain about WTC, Western States, Auburn trails, etc.  Susan G and Jessica ran ahead the first 2 miles, then Jessica headed back and the 3 of us ran another 1/5 mile. This trail is gorgeous!
