Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

Over the River and Through the Woods

Up a few hills. And through more & more woods! 

Today a bunch of us went out to Cool, CA for the Way Too Cool training run.  It was great!  It's nice that we now know exactly where to go on race day.  It was also helpful to preview the course.  A little muddy today, but a super fun course!  I could do without remembering Goat Hill, though.  That's got to be one of the toughest climbs I've ever experienced!

There was an awesome potluck afterwards, too.  The ultra crowd is very generous, laid-back and fun to hang around.  I wonder what kind of distances I'll start doing if I hang out with them a little more ...

My ultra adventure is to be continued!
