We’re meeting at Citrus Ranch Park in Tustin at 7:00 a.m. The address is: 2910 Portola Parkway, Tustin 92782 The map is for an 18 mile round trip run…but you can easily shorten it to any distance by turning back at any point since it is an out-and-back run.

LA Marathon Bib for Sale:   Judi has a friend who signed up for this race, but won’t be able to run it.  Her friend is selling her bib for $125 (current fee is $190).  If anybody is interested…please let me know and I will pass on your contact info to Judi.

Happy Running MARGARET!!!  Margaret is in Jackson, Mississippi this weekend to run the Mississippi Blues Marathon. I do believe that this is State #39.  I think we will all agree that it takes an enormous  amount of physical and emotional strength, determination and perseverance in order to run so many training and race miles year after year!  Way to stay focused on your goal, Margaret!!!

Happy Running MIRANDA!!!  Miranda will be running the 34th Annual Avalon Benefit 50 Mile Run on Saturday.  This race is known as one of the country’s most challenging and scenic 50 milers.  Please take a look at the elevation chart for this course.  I can’t even imagine what it would feel like to run 50 miles…let alone in this type of terrain with all of the elevation changes.  WOW Miranda…you are one tiny, but amazingly strong woman!!!
