Ran the Condor again this year. One of my favorite races, held in memory of Condor. I'm sure he was smiling that day. RDs Tia, Jan and John did a fantastic job. The volunteers were great. Everyone I talked to had a great time. The best part for me was seeing so many friends finish and succeed ... some of them for the first time at this race. Awesome sauce!

Had a great time at CCC again this year. Big contingent from Corvallis/Salem/Albany: John, Ken, Dennis, Mikio, Albany-Ken and I were running; Gaby, Sharon, Scott L, Sander, and Josh L were crewing and pacing. The weather was hellish. Cold driving rain in the night and second day; the peaks and ridges were brutal. But we all got it done! A special thank you to Gaby, who for the fourth time now, did an awesome job pacing me in from Lake Kachess.

Had a great time at the Mac 50K this past weekend. So great to see so many friends out having a fun time. RDs Ken and Dennis and all the volunteers did a fantastic job. The course had some added elevation, bringing the total to 7,000+'. It was a tad warm, but not outrageous. I managed a 5:39, good enough for 2nd in age (after Larry Stephens, who is incredible, having healed up from a broken leg just a few months ago!). Attached are some pics of Kiira helping Marilyn and me mark the Peavy/Section-36/Powderhouse section of the course the day before.

Had a blast yesterday with Gaby and Ken at the Fools Relay. This is a 6 hour event, with a 2 loop course of 6 miles ... you complete as many loops as you can in the 6 hours. A fair bit of climb. I managed 11 loops for a total of about 33 miles, and the win! Granted, there were only about 10 runners in the solo category, but I'll take it :) Gaby and Ken did real well too, completing 10 loops each. Beer, pizza, and a bonfire afterward. Totally awesome sauce!
