Ron Duncan - possibly win the 6hr, going north from his place , while I'm traveling south tomorrow. Will we see each other on I-880? There is a Webcast

Quicksilver - The number of race entrants is at new high (314 last night!), but the race is not yet closed. Please keep coming over. Today is the last chance because there is no race day registration.

Adam Blum (Course-Trained) - one of his weekly races,

Chihping Fu (Ultrailrunning Family Man (超馬阿爸)) - will listens to his injured body - stress fracture for 6 months and cold symptom after Miwok 100K

Alan Geraldi (EnduraZone) - not racing but come over-dressed for heat training?

Sean Lang (Bushido Runner) - upgrade from 50K last year and after great performance so far this year

Rajeev Patel (The Poetic Runner) - First race after helping Miwok 100K and RDing Ruth Anderson. Thank you!, I'll think of your buddy Anil Rao (Adventure Unlimited).

Mark Tanaka (Ultrailnaka) - I can see a lot of your competitors. Please beat them!

I'm excited to have the party of seeing all the ultra/trail friends over there. Then I'll think of the famous Quicksilver burger and massage during the run.

Btw, Quicksilver reminds me when the Thuesday leader Eric Belden first introduced me and Yuki Negoro, プロフィール this run back in 2004. We were so nervous about running 50K on hills when our longest distance was only a Marathon. To me, the training run with Eric and Yuki over Rancho San Antonio got me a taste of trail running. In the 50K, I was actually amazed that I was able to keep moving after the Marathon distance. Since then, both me and Yuki have got addicted to ultra/trail (ultrail?) running.

Good luck our Ultraholics and all the friends I'll see tomorrow!
