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

Way Too Cool Race Review    

I can cross ultra off my list of things to do!  Whoo-hoo!  Yesterday I ran the Way Too Cool 50K.  Even though it's still a little painful to walk today, I can honestly say that I enjoyed it.  The course was beautiful, the trails were in pristine condition, and the weather was perfect.  I am happy with my race, too -- ran it in 5:15 -- finished 214th overall (out of 698) and 12th (out of 96) in my age group.  I think I ran a pretty smart race, too.  Didn't start off too fast and fueled when I needed to.  The best part (besides Goat Hill -- ha ha!) was randomly seeing Dave & Jack!  At about mile 29, we had to cross a road, so there are volunteers directing traffic.  Guess whose car was first in the traffic stop right when I was crossing the road?!?  Ours!  Dave & Jack came to see me finish.  The timing couldn't have been more perfect! 

Thanks to NorCalUltras, my running buddies, and Dave & Jack for a super fun weekend!
