To love people who love you is easy. Choose to be everyone's friend, whether they like you or not. When you love and accept others as they are, you will have friends everywhere.
Was in SoCal for my 3rd Leona Divide 50 miler. The plan was a PR on that course. And I did, thanks to Andy who is always so kind to slow down and run with me. The course was harder but for some reason we had a good run.
Kiera did and awesome job as a first time RD. Awesome volunteers and great aidstations with themes ;-) I did hear that there was no coke and not enough food. and 2 of the aidstations ran out of fruit which is the only thing I eat from the tables. It happens and I know it will be better next year.
I love this race because it's on my favorite trail the Pacific crest trail, I hiked 2,000 miles in 07 and it is a special place to me.
This time of year the Poppies are out of control. It's simply beautiful. During the race it looks like from way up high 5,000ft that the valley is on fire.
I was happy at the finish to see trail angels Terrie and Joe Anderson from Casa de Luna. They are amazing people they let 100's of dirty stinky tired hikers sleep and rest at there home. They give us rides to and from the trailhead and let us shower and make us food. They rock!!!
I plan on hanging out at there place over Memorial day weekend for the big hiker party there as the heard starts coming through.
