Good Evening Incline Club!

Its time to go beyond 10,800’.... That’s right, the trails are clearing up and this week we will push higher and farther. To the Bottomless Pit and beyond!

For those who have been spending too much time training, it's time to start racing! The 33rd running of the Garden of the Gods 10 is June 14th, and there are still a few spots left! We even made it extra easy for IC’ers since the start line is right where we start our Sunday morning runs. It does not get much easier than that. :-) Details can be found at http://www.gardentenmile.com/

***********************************************
NEXT RUN: Tempo (Thursday), Beyond the Bottomless Pit... (Sunday)
***********************************************
Thursday, June 4, 5:45pm — Hydro Street
Warm up from Memorial Park in time to get to Hydro Street. Do a 30 minute tempo run up the Barr Trail. Run easy back down the Barr Trail do 6 Ruxton Ave hill repeats.

Sunday, June 7, 8:00AM — Memorial Park
Run to the end of the 1st switchback after the Bottomless Pit Sign and back via the Barr Trail.

Race Volunteers Needed:
***********************************************
As many of you know, many of the local races would not be possible without the help of dozens (and sometimes hundreds) of volunteers who make sure the runners have a good time. From setting up to on course marshaling to cleaning up, they are the folks who make the race possible. If you or somebody you know is able to help out, you can volunteer for any of the TCR series races via the online form at http://www.thetcr.com/volunteer.asp or the Barr Trail Mountain Race via http://runpikespeak.com/contact.htm

***********************************************
Weekend Weather Report:
***********************************************
Thursday: 60’s amd 50% sky cover. 25% chance of precip before 6pm, 10% after.

Sunday: Mid to upper 50’s at the start under partially cloudy skies. Mid 50’s when you hit Barr Camp and it should be in the upper 60’s when you finish.

Race Reports:
***********************************************
This week, Elizabeth Helland reports on the Greenland 25k and Jon Teisher tries out 50 miles along some hills in New Mexico.

Greenland Trail 25K — Greenland Open Space — 05/09/2009
Jemez Mountain — Los Alamos, NM — 05/16/2009

***********************************************
Greenland Trail 25K — Greenland Open Space — 05/09/2009

Elizabeth Helland reports:
Distance: 25K
Goal: 2:07
Results: 2:10
Website: http://www.greenland50k.com/Results.html

General Summary:
Course was fairly flat, very windy on the way out on both loops

Things Done Right:
Signed up for my first race of the season to convince myself to get back into Spring/Summer shape :)

Things Done Wrong:
Went out a little too fast for the windy conditions, did a hard run too close to race day so legs felt sluggish

***********************************************
Jemez Mountain — Los Alamos, NM — 05/16/2009
Jon Teisher reports:
Distance: 50 miles
Goal: 11:09
Results: 13:37:58
Website: http://www.highaltitudeathletics.org/JemezMt.htm

General Summary:
50 miles of rugged trails up and over lots of New Mexico mountains. But NM mountains are weak, only topping out at 12,000 feet.

Things Done Right:
Finished.

Things Done Wrong:
Lost a contact right before the race, causing me some depth perception issues over the next 13.5 hours.

Any Other Stuff:
Very beautiful course, well worth the five hour drive from Manitou. They also have a 50K and 20K option. Several runners were greeted by a bear on the out and back to Caballo mountain.
