Week of 2/27/17: Workouts, Sat HR, Mark Richtman sets new AR

Hi Folks,

We’ll be out today (Sunday) and back on Monday. Saturday is Cool 50K which Judi Shaffer and a good number of other Tamalpans will be running.  Sunday, 3/5/17 is Napa Marathon which Mark Fujwara will be running; I’m sure there are other Tamalpans running this beautiful course from Calistoga to Vintage HS in Napa.

RESULTS: Wow! Mark Richtman, set a new AR for 50M for M60-69 in 6:17:24 at the River Run 24 hour event – by about an hour (old 7:16:50)! Congrats to you Mark. Pictures will be posted later..Also Florencia Amyx won her division in the very hilly “Inside Trails Lake Chabot” run and Vicki DeMenno got 3rd in her division for the Half.


HANS SCHMID had a remarkable run experience in Chad! That’s right Central Africa where he ran a 187 km race, guided through by GPS only! He spent 8 hours lost in the darkness when he accidentally deleted the course directions! More to come…


Lisa and Judi celebrate Judi’s new PB of 6:36 on a sloppy course for the Cool 50K. Nothing like a PB to make it a satisfying day. I ‘m sure more Tamalpans ran today. We’ll see who else ran this popular ultra.
