"There is no such thing as can't, only won't. If you're qualified, all it takes is a burning desire to accomplish, to make a change. Go forward, go backward. Whatever it takes! But you can't blame other people or society in general. It all comes from your mind. When we do the impossible we realize we are special people."

I did it!! Ohlone 131 miler in 49:45.
This was my 10th year running 100 or 131 miles before the race and finishing the last 50k of the Ohlone with the official race. I want to thank my awesome pacers Kathy D'Onofrio who ran 64 miles total both the night section she is always a rockstar!! Martin Whitcomb who ran out to me in Sunol on my 3rd trek back. Also thanks to Jerry Roninger for his help shuttling Kathy back and bringing out Truman and Skye to pace me. Oh and Julia who ran two miles and brought me ice!!
I had a great run and felt strong the whole way. 
Fruitarian power all the way!!

Making a wish!!

“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.”

Ohlone 131 miler starts tomorrow looking forward to the challenge. Friends please send me positive vibes and thoughts. I will need it.
I hopefully will finish 48 hours on Sunday during the Ohlone 50k race which is the last part of my run.
Looking forward to lots of hours on the trail with one of my favorite pacers Kathy D'Onofrio .

We must be willing to let go of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

Truman ran his second 10k trail race. Cinderella trail. His time was 1:12 missed his PR by a minute. He had to stop for 2 poop breaks. Lol. He was 27th overall out of over 100 runners. 1st in his age.
Truman rocks!!
