Mid-week recap

A quick recap of Sunmart. We had over 30 runners from our group or TATUR go to Sunmart to run in either the 50 mile or 50 kilometer race. No one from the RunnersWorld contingent failed to cross the finish line. I think that is AWESOME! Lisa, Jason, Bobby, and Jenni all finished their very 1st ultra. They all made it look easy. That's the Trail Zombies nephew Jeff in the middle. He also ran his 1st ultra. His longest run before was just 25K. He is only 17, and he won his age group. He would have even won his age group even if he was included in the 18-20 group too.

Cool Bobby the Vespa Man, along with Dana and Bob (who is wearing a very nice vest, I might add) hung out with me the whole way. Ya can't even measure the fun we had!

Now, just in case you wonder if the newbies group runs in cold weather, 15 of us ran on Tuesday night. It was cold! And, we all ran at least 3 miles, with some going 4! The proof.... Not the best picture, but IT IS the best group! Call me a pic picker if ya want....this is swiped from Cassy's blog. Now that's a good photograph!

See you all tomorrow!

Can anyone spot the two Michaels' on page D1 of this mornings (Thursday's) Tulsa World? I am related to one but not the other.

The cold was bad, but the wind was brutal. Still it was a great and invigorating feeling to be out there putting one foot in front of the other. Thanks to Runners World for keeping us moving even in the cold times...
