On Sunday, 4 of the Coastal Cuties (as we now seem to be known), got together for a run in the hills of San Clemente and pre-run interview and photo shoot by Fred Swegles and Paul Bersebach of the OC Register. I had originally contacted Fred with the idea of him writing an article about the girls training for TCC, an advance story to get much needed publicity for the race. As we chatted via email over the course of several weeks, he became intrigued by how we were training for the race, in particular the Tahoe Triple Marathon and Grand Canyon R2R2R. Lorraine was kind enough to allow him to see the photographs she took of the Grand Canyon adventure and Fred was hooked. Unfortunately Shelli couldn't be with us but you can read the article at
Nicely written and certainly lighter reading than the horrific tales of neighborhoods ravaged by fire in So. Cal over the weekend. My heart goes out to everyone affected by this latest round of destruction and devastation.
Next up, the 5 of us will attempt the Santa Monica Mountains Trail 50K on 11/23.
