Winter Trail Run Series 15K Results - February 9, 2008

Good Morning
Now Sunday morning in Laguna Woods, just finished the results and sent them to me mate Doug for posting. Well how did we do? I fell in love 47 times yesterday at the WRTS 15K, amazing how pretty the ladies are at my races; must be running on the trails with little on. Some of the blokes were OK too... and young!

A runner did have to go to the emergency room, with a nasty chunk of wood in his leg; funny thing was he did it at the 2-mile mark and went on to finish! I did my best to assist, but decided hospital would be best. He said he will give us an update in 2 weeks…. Tough guy. I did notice several war wounds, both male and female, but no one complained. That is magic. Did we luck out with the weather? Seems spring time has arrived. Our new mate from New York City can’t wait to come back! Maybe we’ll get a mention in Runners World!

Must say a big thank you to all my good mates who ran the show. One mate slept over in the woods, so he wouldn’t let me down. We are very lucky with the camaraderie. Maybe our numbers are small, but the atmosphere was magic all morning in Blue Jay. I am sure you guys enjoy meeting new runners, I do. Just a reminder, if you are interested in the final two races and you haven’t signed up, please do so ASAP. Our Forest Service partners request no more than 150 runners, the 129 finishers would have been greater if the 29 no-shows would have turned up. Hey they make the rules, not Bazza.

As for the race, no wrong turns this time! Me mate, Dean Dobberteen, finished strong with a great time. Only 28 seconds separated the first 4 runners, with Christen Hahmas taking second and Todd Horton in third, all in their 30’s. The women’s race was just as exciting with my girl Michelle Barton racing across the finish line, 7th overall I might add, just 31 seconds in front of Lisa O’Leary. Rufus Schneider came 5 minutes back to take third women overall. All the age group winners did good... Don’t forget I try to share awards by giving age group winners their day in the sun. The raffle went OK too, my mate Kevin did good with the Starbucks delights again, our local mates at Fleet Feet Sports and E-Gel did good, plus my generous give-a-ways…. (I was going to say throw-a-ways!) Hey as long as we have a bit of fun, it was nice to see everyone staying around in the magic weather. By the way, don’t worry I will pick up all the ribbons, joking of course, just happy to be out there.

The sweat-shirts for runners completing all 4 races will not be available until I know more accurate numbers, but by race day on March 8 I will have them. I hope I have enough race shirts. I know some have requested buying them… Maybe later? Of course, I will get more made if necessary. I hope the food and drink table was OK, I am sorry me mate Billy Dickey missed out on his beer... I will make up for it next time. Didn’t get one myself. Plenty in me fridge at home of course.

Again thanks to everyone. We will be having more fun in the woods on February 23. Be sure to bring a water bottle next time, especially if it is warm weather. Any questions - you can always email me at home
bazhawley@sti.net. Love these amazing machines, just wish I knew more.

Love and Happy Valentines me ladies!  BAZ XXX

GPS record of the elevation changes.  The Garmin sums all those ups and downs.  Tells us we climbed a TOTAL of 2/3rds of a mile (3,502 feet)!  The Garmin measured a distance of 9.39 miles, whereas 15 kilometers = 9.32 miles.  Baz did good!

Double click on this link and wait for Google Earth to zoom in from orbit to the view that shows the red outline of the entire 15K course.  Once it stabilizes, click on PLAY TOUR button or select PLAY TOUR from the drop down VIEW menu.   That starts the animated flyover of the entire course.  Awesome!

Some of the WTRS RAFFLE GOODIES!

No, I absolutely will not take bribes or hugs for the best raffle prizes!

Kevin, who owns several Starbucks franchises, including our favorite on Ortega Highway, brought  pre-race hot coffee and donated great raffle prizes!

A lime green running skirt!  Oh well - I really would have rather won a pound of Starbucks coffee!

And the GRAND raffle prize - a week with Baz on a Carribean cruise - if you pay for both - goes to....
