The Wedge overlook at the San Rafael Swell group run:
This is the third year in a row that we have done this run. Two years ago it was just me, MattW, CraigL and MVH, but today we had 18 awesome folks with us to tackle the Wedge. The trail conditions were nearly perfect and the temps were mild.
We ran in a large group to the aid stop at mile 9 and then Jennilyn and Craig put some distance on everyone else. I ran from that point to mile 27 with Chris Pope, Trent P. and MattW. We had a really good time telling stories and talking about ultra running. I felt great all day. My legs were strong and my energy excellent.
At mile 27 Jennilyn was laying on the side of the trail not feeling well. She has been suffering with some stomach flu for a few days and it caught up with her. She is one tough cookie, so I knew she must be feeling like crap. I gave her a Tylenol which seemed to help and Matt and I walked with her for about a mile until she felt better. We ran it in taking a short cut that ended up cutting off a few miles, but that was ok with all of us. At the finish we had a BBQ and hung out as the rest of the crew came in. It was an excellent adventure.
