The Tough Enough community — that’s you — donated $2,440 to  Direct Relief this year. Particular thanks to Mauricio and Leif for extra donations.

Please write to me or post comments with improvements or tuning you’d like next year. For example, one runner suggested having a 4WD patrol long, hot Leg 6 with water and snacks.

From the Race Director, thanks to Kimberly Burnell and Toad&Co.

On behalf of all of you, thanks to all of you.

Luck. We were there at that time
Long sight from the ridge, over the chaparral, up through the pines
Later, in the valley, California poppies, lupine, wild mustard
Descending Refugio, oaks overhanging the trail, Spanish moss on north-facing hillsides
Sycamores tracking water

 

Good day. The noble-hearted Amigos de Goleta triumph. The JayKays have to wait another year in their attempt to dethrone We’ve Got The Fronk. How close? Sweet Stephanie and her cohort were roughly one-1000th of a percent faster. Ian and John looked not at all as though they’d just run 65 miles; Jon was graceful enough to look tired.

Sincere thanks to all runners and everyone supporting them. I feel fortunate in the opportunity to support you.

Accounting and donation to Direct Relief next weekend.

We — the local runners (including you) who comprise Tough Enough — are sending $1,538 to Direct Relief.

These people are just good; probably need a capital letter on Good. They embody a kind of essence of being good.

Many thanks from the race director for making the party so fun.
