Congratulations to our Malibu Half Marathon Finishers!
What a great weekend! I really had a great time with everyone, and hope you all had a good time too. I wish we could have spent a bit more time together, but maybe next time for LA Marathon! :)
It really could have been a rainy icky day, but instead it turned out to be the most beautiful day. While I was running the Half, I kept looking out to the ocean and thinking, "wow, could it be more perfect?"
Some of you reading this and not knowing think we only train for trails, which is not true. We love running, I do prefer trail, but love the road running too. Here are our students times...
Ann Pearce 2:06:46
Donna Reed 2:07:07
Corrinne Wallace 2:10:15
Elizabeth Fleming 2:17:22
Kathy Barrie 2:25:14

Connie Visconte 2:45:50
Ann McQuiston 2:45:50
I have to say you guys really did an amazing job, and for some of you, this was only your 2nd Half Marathon, and these are great times! Just think, you get faster, not slower, so your times will get better and better by a few minutes through the years. Good job on all your hard work! I think track night has really made you guys faster! :) I may have to start training at the track too if I want faster times!
For this weekend, weather dependent we will have another Xterra training on Sunday at 8am. Meet at Ridge Park. If it is raining, we will run in Coto De Caza. We meet at the waterfall and run in through there for lets say at least 10 miles. We will keep your miles up and resume at Ridepark the following week, if it is raining. For Saturday, you are welcome to come out and train with our Snails groups on the road at 7am if you are not a part of our Desert Tri group. We will be meeting at the Laguna Hills Community Center.
For our Desert Tri Group, and you know who you are, you guys will be having assessments Saturday and Sunday. I think a personal email will go out telling you time and place and what to bring and have with you. We will be swimming and biking depending on the weather of course as well. Swimming for sure no matter the rain.
Don't forget if you have not done so already, please sign up on our new Meetup Page at... http://www.meetup.com/OC-Trail-Tales/ we would love for you to be able to see our calendar at your convenience, and post comments and such on there as well.
Again, great job, and thank you guys for being the best students and friends ever!
