Just got a call from my brother after doing the Pear Blossum 10 mile run in Medford Oregon today. It has been around for many years in southern Oregon. He ran a 58 and change. He was happy. He does feel pretty hammered after poundin the pavement for an hour. He did finish ahead of Craig and Ticer both previous top ten runners at States.
The amazing news was that Lewis Taylor was third at American River 50 miler and Scott Wolfe was 2nd. Now Scott is in Western States. Both Lewis and Scott went into the race with no expectations. Just to run hard and enjoy it. They both train with my brother.
Oh, the mens race at States just keeps getting deeper. Scott, earned a spot after finishing in the top three at American River.
States will be fun to watch.
Now Ticer, my brother and Craig will be doing Peterson Ridge Rumble 35 milerish tomorrow.
Just more fun I figure.
have a good weekend.
