PCTR Chabot Trail Run
February 20, 2011
Ran the 30k event, got real muddy and had a great time. It felt good to race again. Getting back into shape for the longer races!

PCTR Pirates Cove
March 19, 2011
I was supposed to run the 30k for this event as well but changed my mind on race morning and stepped up to the 50k. Had a great race and it was unexpected. I felt good for pretty much the entire time. It was sloppy with the mud and rain but I kicked butt, my own especially. Cracked that whip for the entire race.

4:48:35 for 5th Place.

Quicksilver 50-Mile
May 7, 2011
After AR50 I just kept on training hard and ran Quicksilver on tired legs. I definitely felt the wear and tear but had an unexpectedly good race. I was up and down the entire race but finished strong. Glad I did it.

8:24: something for 11th

Western States 100
June 25-26, 2011
Came away with another finish over 24 hours. Yaaaargggghhh! One day, one day! Besides that it was a great tie with friends, those running as well as crewing, volunteering and spectating. A great event.

San Francisco Marathon
July 29, 2011
First marathon in 7 years. Woohoo I forgot how fun they can be, painful too - all that asphalt. Fun time and as hilly as San Francisco is, it's nothing to the hills we run ever weekend in the Marin Headlands.Paced Jennifer Pattee, did a poor job at it but she did get her sub-4 goal.

Cebu Summit 60k Challenge
October 3, 2011
My first Ultra in the Philippines! It was hot and tough and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I wasn't properly prepared for this race what with all the sight seeing and eating I had been doing the four weeks prior but it was a chance I couldn't pass up. I'd love to come back in better shape and give it another go.

Quad Dipsea
November 26, 2011
Love, love this race

5:47:11 Slower than in years past but considering the fun I've had in the UK and the Philippines, not running much, I'm happy with it. Love this race! 8 finishes down, 2 more to go for the 10 year jacket.

Pacing at Miwok 100k
May 5, 2011
Paced buddy Bradley Fenner and was a witness to his amazing strength, determination and stamina. He had been injured earlier in the Spring and couldn't run for 8 weeks. Despite being under trained he finished and finished strong. Amazing performance.

Crewing and Spectating at San Diego 100
June 11-12, 2011
Love San Diego 100, ran it the last 2 years, out this year because of Western States. Nevertheless I joined a group of friends to crew and pace. I was supposed to pace my buddy Randy Katz but he came down with food poisoning two days before the race. After he dropped he and I returned to the course to keep track of friends. We got to see Larissa Polischuk finally finish a 100 miler. A great time

Crewing and Pacing yet again at Javelina Jundred
October 15-16, 2011
My fourth time at this race and still a crew and pacer. One day, one day I am going to run this race, at least once! Another great time made even better by my buddy John Branderhorst, joining us for his first 100. A group of friends came to support and we had a grand ol' time in the Arizona dessert or is that desert... I always forget. That's okay, running this race is always a treat, some of the 100 milers may beg to differ though :)
