American River 50 mile Run
This last weekend was the American River 50 mile run and again I didn't run it, at least not all the way, I just paced my friend Dianne over the last 10 miles. I ran the race back in 2006 but I am not sure I have it in me to do it again. These days 10 miles is really enjoyable for me but I must admit I was really inspired by all those runners making it all the way through the entire 50 miles.
What a beautiful day it was on Saturday though - California at its finest - a nice sunny day with a cool breeze. The California poppies and lupins were blooming - it was just a delightful day. The picture below is Dianne, still moving quite well, around mile 47 - just 3 miles to go. Unfortunately the most difficult 3 miles of the run - all uphill.
