Happy trails, Ann Ongena - club director

I Will Never Complain Again


My long run is usually about 10 to 14 miles. Sometimes, I complain if a trail is too steep, rocky, or even muddy. I will never complain again. Last weekend, Mieko started running Saturday morning at 8:30AM in Corona, until she finished SUNDAY afternoon at 2:30 PM near Huntington Beach. This was the 100-Miles Club course--all on streets and sidewalks. Just imagine that Mieko was tracking her distance over 93.5 miles for 30 hours.

Grand Canyon: Rim-to-Rim Run 5/22/2010
This past weekend, a few members of the Trail Runners Club and I embarked on an epic run across the Grand Canyon. This is commonly referred to as 'Rim-to-Rim' run, as in the North Rim to the South Rim, or vice versa.

TRC Shines in the Ragnar Relay

The Group

Club members gathered under the tutelage of TRC member Art on the weekend of April 23rd - 24th, to compete in the Ragnar Relay from Ventura to Dana Point. This is a 200 mile relay with each member of a 12-man team running 3 legs on very little sleep. The TRC entry was a man short and Michael and Art had to carry the extra load. Out of 282 teams entered, TRC came in second (31 hours, 51 minutes) in the Mixed-Masters category, in spite of having 3 runners in their 50’s and 3 runners in their 60’s.

The Three Musketeers Do The Leona Divide 50-Miler


Well, last weekend our own 3 Musketeers--Art, Donn and Mieko did a very grueling 50-miler--The Leona Divide. In Donn's own words, this is how the event went down:

Trail Runners Hit the Wine Country

Adam, Kathy and Liz

Several Trail Runners made it up to the Wine Country to participate in the Napa Valley Trail Half-Marathon and 10k on March 27, 2010. In spite of the pre-race indulgences, all enjoyed the beautiful but tough course. Adam ran a blistering 1:41, and sisters Liz and Kathy also competed in the half-marathon. Aviva and her husband Jeff finished the half together, looking extremely strong at the finish. The Tri-Girls- Helen, Heather and Amy, brought a friend from New York, Peggy, who ran her first race. Animal Helen came in second in her division.
