Gooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaalllllllllllll !!

Got my running goal for 2012 met, this fine Christmas day - 600 miles! Wonderful time with the Delucchi's and friends last night - that was my Christmas bonding time. Today would be for work, and for a good long run. The skies were dark and getting darker, with the first few sprinkles coming down ahead of a powerful storm. Not good for a bike ride, but perfect for a local run, up into the Pogonip to the University and back. Met some interesting mushrooms, ancient gravestones, fallen trees, lots of mud puddles, Bay trees, redwoods, and an occasional other runner getting in some inspiring miles. Brought my pocket camera for a few shots. http://www.cabrillo.edu/~rnolthenius/triathlon/Xmas12/index.html

I'm STILL swamped! Literally, actually, today. Just got back from the North Face Challenge championship at Marin Headlands. The half marathon, alas, was cancelled when high winds blew over the potties and the main tent etc. Our gang, alone, persevered and ran it anyway! Soggy fun! Pix page to follow, after school is out and I have some time...
