Happy New Year Incline Club!

I hope everybody had a good 2008, but it is time to start an even better 2009! You can start it off right with tomorrow's Rescue Run (see below) or our 2nd feedbag at the next IC club run on Sunday! (details below).

Please note that due to a lack of any ultra race reports, this week's newsletter is a lot shorter :-)

***********************************************
NEXT RUN: Longs Ranch Road
***********************************************
Sunday, Jan 4, 8:00AM - Memorial Park
Head out the Ute Pass Trail until it intersects Longs Ranch Road. Take TWO lefts and head UP LRR. Try to smile when you hit Poppa Bear Hill;-) Connect into the Barr Trail at No Name Creek and run back down. Take the J Pipe trail for a shorter run. Add Bobs Road for a longer run.

THIS WEEK'S QUOTE:
***********************************************
If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can't, you're right.
-- Henry Ford

***********************************************
Feed Bag:
***********************************************
In keeping with tradition, this week we will have our second feedbag. If your first name starts with the letter K through M, please bring enough food and drink for you and 3 other people. We will once again stick the food in the back of a car and have at it after the run. As a reminder by food, I mean if you like a banana and a Gatorade after your run then bring 4 bananas and 4 Gatorades etc. Anything goes!

We would like to hear some feedback on the timing and frequency of the feedbag. Email your thoughts to ic@inclineclub.com

***********************************************
2009 Rescue Run 5k and 10k:
***********************************************
Tomorrow, January 1st at 10am in Palmer Park is the 31st annual Rescue Run.

All proceeds of the race go to the El Paso County Search and Rescue. This group provides free search and rescue operations in our area. They also help out with stranded drivers during severe weather. During the blizzard we had last October, they were out there helping to dig people out and provide safe transport. And Search and Rescue also supports the local running community by providing on-course communication and medical support for the Barr Trail Mountain Race, Pikes Peak Ascent, Pikes Peak Marathon, and Winter Series.

Details are on the PPRR site at http://www.pprrun.org/events/RescueRun/main.htm

***********************************************
Weather Report:
***********************************************
In Manitou, NWS is currently calling for 20 deg at 8am, warming up to 30 by 11am. Winds will be in the 10mph range with approximately 80% sky cover and a 15% chance of snow with no significant accumulation.

A little further up at 9000ft, they are calling for more or less the same thing, but only 24 deg by 11am with a 24% chance of precipitation.

As always, remember to look outside before you venture off on Sunday morning.

***********************************************
Suggested Course Overview:
***********************************************
This weeks suggested run is Longs Ranch Road. It is a classic route with one major feature: the uphill. Try it, you'll like it.
