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.

Another Epic Run!

What a fantastic day today! About 30 Folsom Trail Runners met at the Quarry Trailhead for our WTC training run.

The weather was perfect and the sun came out, making for an incredible day. The goal was to hit the 2 main hills on the WTC course. The first was Ball Bearing:

This was a tough, long climb. But once at the top, the singletrack towards Goat Hill was absolute heaven!

Next up was Goat Hill, another tough climb, but much shorter

We had great company, Jennifer and Mary are ultrarunner veterans and kept us on the right track.

We both ran strong today and breakfast at the Pine Cone lodge was a great ending. It was a great day and made me love trail running even more (if that's possible)!


  1. Wasn't so beautiful out there today. Twin Rocks was great!! I wish I could run there every Tuesday with you!!

  2. It was an awesome run.

    Editorial correction: We went to the South Pine Cafe in Auburn afterward. Yummy food!

    Thanks Pam for taking pics.
