Catra & Rocky



















Me & rocky after a 6 miler. He was a little worked.
He loves to run! He's the only reason I taper.
If it wasn't for him I would go out and run longer before my 100's,
which isn't very smart.
Have a great day! Posted by Picasa

Hey Catra,
I'm going to be in Palo Alto next week. Need to run about twenty miles, do you have any info on the trail situation out there? Thanks. Remember, Rocky miles don't count, I know he's short roping you.

Pomaika`i Catra-

Before you go, hoping you can clear something up for me regarding the Ohlone 50K course...

Just after the set of switchbacks that mark the beginning of Horse Heaven, does the course take a left (at the marker pole) up the steep single track, or does it go straight ahead past the pole and eventually connect back with the steep trail (prior to the little gate that always is a PITA to open)? Thanks, hope that makes sense.

See ya around.

Hey running man-
I dont know the trails around here. I live in Fremont. You should head to Fremont 30 min. away and run Mission Peak.
It's great training. There is a trail map and the parking area or just google Mission Peak.

If I was around I'd run with U
Wait When will you be here?? I will be back Tuesday night.

Hey SN-
I think I know what you are taking about. Go stright. It use to be the HH trail. But two years ago we did trail maintance and made the steep one going to the right and added the sign, It's not the offical 50k race course. My way straight ahead way is.
The gate isn't a big deal just lift the little latch.

hey Catra,

glad you had a good run with the dog.

running man,

try ebparks.org and look for "mission peak", "sunol", and "ohlone wilderness" for Catra's trails if you want to drive over to fremont. you could also try www.quicksilver-running.com the 50k/50mi race they put on in may is in san jose which is also near by palo alto, they have maps on their web site.
