The last few weeks

What's this...  snow in Oxnard, California?  Yep, it was trucked in from the mountains' last storm in celebration of the Santa to the Sea Half Marathon, which the above unnamed clowns actually ran.  :)  We were all stoked to finish ahead of a certain Academy award-winning actress (below) who was running stealthily, and the unnamed male in the photo above (rumor has it his name is Garbonzo McFuddlebaum) got second place in his age group although he claims to not have run a road race in 10+ years.  Yay Garbonzo!!

We had a lot of fun manning the turnaround aid station for the Red Rock 40 miler on the tough trails of Santa Barbara.  Again, we were treated to a celebrity sighting!  I think these ladies finished 2nd and 3rd.

Yesterday we got out on the Ojai Ridge to do a bit of road clearing, fluid stashing, and trail work for the fast approaching Coyote Blue Moon.  We lucked out with perfect weather and hard workers.  Thanks guys!

 Arms and hands are sore today!
