Santa Monica Mountains 50K - Marathon #97

It was a beautiful morning in Malibu. Perfect day for a ultra marathon. Santa Monica Mountains has awesome views of the coast, inland grasslands and rugged mountains peaks. My journey is coming to a end and I decided to enjoy every moment. I finished 8:52:34


Problems and predicaments come to us all. There's no sign saying, "You must be this tall..." to ride on the emotional roller coasters that take so many of us for a spin. The bad news is that there are times when we're passengers...whether we like it or not. The good news is that we can always choose to get off at the next stop. Know how strong and capable you are. You have weathered times before that had difficulty and frustration. And - just as sure as the sun will rise in the morning - you can rise to this occasion.

  1. I'll be at the North Face Endurance 50 when you are in Vegas, but I'll be thinking of you.

    It was nice seeing you at Love Your Heart Marathon (February), Coto de Caza Marathon (July), Skyline 50K (August), Big Bear 50K (September), Golden Hills Marathon (Dick Collins 50) (October) and Santa Monica Mountains 50K (November). And I thought running 2 marathons and 10 ultras in 12 months was crazy!!
