so last weekend i took part in the san francisco 1-day, another spectacular event put on by the pctr (pacific coast trail runs). they put on some thirty races every year, covering much of the northern, central and southern california coast. i've done some of their events, most recently the sycamore canyon 30k (last may). rds wendell and sarah are two of the most selfless people you'll ever meet, and they'll go out of their way if there is anything they feel they can do to help you.
if you're looking to experience some of beauty, fun and camraderie, i strongly suggest you sign up for the santa monica mountains, coming up on the 23rd. with hikers welcome, and options such as 9 km, 18 km, 30 km, and 50 km, it is certain to be a successful solo or family event. (i'll be there)! the views are stunning, and hey, how else could you start thanksgiving week on a caloric deficit?
