|Yes, that's Footfeathers in the appropriate personage.|
Last weekend we (PCTR) put on the Santa Monica Mountains Trail Run down in Malibu. We arrived on Saturday to a warm and sunny afternoon of trail marking for the 50k, 30k, 18k, and 9k events (sounds daunting but the courses share the same trails). I'm nearly ready to burst from my self imposed recovery month of November, so I wasn't too upset when I got a bit lost, which ended up with a 2.5 hour run on the shoulders of Pt. Mugu looking down the canyon to the ocean and sunset. Beautiful trails.
Anyway, the event went off perfectly, especially considering the awful weather. We packed up, slept a couple hours and drove back up to the Bay Area. Race directing is terribly glamorous, as I was reminded while left alone to unload a couple thousand pounds of race equipment, soaked and muddy and in need of a good cleaning and airing out. Next event is Woodside 50k next weekend. Hoping for good weather and a perfect event.
Here's a nice video of the Santa Monica event that Billy Yang put together - Boy's got skills.
