Noble Canyon 50k
On Sept. 29, 2007, Aaron, myself and a group of very attractive "Dirt Divas" set out to run the Noble Canyon 50k. For 3 0r 4 months prior to this the group had been training together and putting in the hard work to attempt this challenge. These girls and Aaron, worked their tails off. Week in and week out. Sometimes we would meet at 0530 to log some miles. Half the group had never even ran a marathon so this would be a huge challenge.
Race day arrives and nerves are on edge. Will we finish? Will our bodies hold up? What lies out there for us on the trail? Me, I had no doubt that they would do just fine. At 0700 hours the race begins. Within a couple miles the jitters are gone and the fun begins! For the next 7 1/2 hours this group runs, jokes and laughs together. Not only did they all finish, they did so with big smiles on their face! CONGRATULATIONS -- Aaron, Carrie, Marie, Meg, Mindy, Nicole & Rebekah! You guys are awesome. More good times to come.
