Two INKnBURN BadAss Mommas

El Fin--Stage 6.jpg

The last Stage 6 was 4,900 ft in elevation gain over 20.9 miles.  Nothing was easy here.  Skye and Ann consistently kept in 1st place again over this punishing course.  It couldn't have been any better---Congratulations Badass Mommas.


Stage 5 is on the books.  The Dadass Mommas took the stage and gained 26 minutes more.  Over 23.6 miles with 4,200 ft.gain, these girls ran from 8,700 ft to 11,701 ft and back on tough trails in less than 5 hours.  Also, they bathed into the vistas and took pictures too.  Don't ever challenge them to anything--PERIOD.


Ann and Skye took 1st place in Stage 4 which started from 9.200 ft. to 11,678 ft. and there was 2,900 ft. over 14.1 miles.  The Mommas gained 10 minutes and lead by 39 minutes overall.  Tomorrow will be Stage 5 spanning 23.6 miles over 4,200 ft. gain.  I have a feeling they are ready for it.


Team Two InknBurn Badass Mommas, Skye Colclough and Ann Ongena, bounced back from a second place Stage 2 finish to notch their second win of the week in the 80+ Women’s division of Stage 3.  Their time of 4:40:55 placed them seven minutes ahead of Kim Kortz and Megan Anderson and widened their overall lead to 28:59. Stage 3 climbed 2 peaks to almost 11,000 ft.over 24.2 miles with an elevation gain of 2,800 ft.  Lookin'Good.


The Mommas are still holding their 22 minute advantage after Stage 2.  The team of Megan Anderson and Kim Kortz won Stage 2 by 2 seconds over Ann and Skye.  This was a very tough 13.3 mile course.  The first 7+ miles gained 3,250 ft. and was reached at 12,536 ft elevation  --Ouch!  Hope Pass is a fitting eponym.  This is so exciting--here is the Stage Post 2.

 


Ann and Skye had an awesome start in Stage 1 Women 80+  of the TransRockies.  The stage covered 20.9 miles with 2,550 ft of elevation, and they started at 7,900 ft. to 9,300 ft and back to 8,300 ft.  You are rockin'.  See the posted stages each day.

The Rim Trail--Sept. 23, 2012

Last Sunday the club ran a 19 miler with an uncommon path looping from Chantry Flat to Mt. Wilson.  From Chantry Flat, we ascended Sturtevant Trail through Spruce Grove and after 4 miles we climbed up to Newcomb Pass.  Reaching the pass, we turned along the Rim Trail that follows to Mt.

The Legs Were Like Life

Well, the Backbone Trail in the Santa Monica Mountains is 68 miles up and down from Pacific Palisades to Pt. Mugu State Park.  We quartered  this trail into 4 runs into our Sunday runs.  It was a little of a pain, since we scheduled so that most of the cars were at the finish and we took runners to the start. 

Leg 1 started at Will Rogers Park in Palific Palisades in a light rain.  As we climbed, the temperature lowered and the rain was raining harder.  We then sled down the Musch Trail and the Dead Horse Trail in slick mud in the rain--what a kick!  Then we ran as a loyal group on an often used connector to the trail that climbs  Hondo Canyon.  Now the rain

Santa Monica Mountains--150,000 Acres--A Treasure

As some of our club members appreciated looking over the spanse of hills above the blue Pacific Ocean.  Then we amazed at the million years old fossils on our trail last week.  Don't waste yourself missing this treasure--You only live once.
