Heros of Western States 100m Endurance Race

The Western States 100 mile Endurance Run is possibly the toughest endurance event in the world. My run club "Steven's Creek Striders" had 4 amazing athletes in the event - all finished. The club also organized the aid station at mile 43 - "Last Chance". Terry also took part by being in one of the safety crews.

Fantastic performances from everybody at Stiders - especially the 4 heros who finished the race. Congratulations. And "well done, Jean" for organizing the aid station.

10 July 2004. Ali's birthday. We had a fantastic weekend in Yosemite Valley, California. We were joined on the expedition by the Dermers from Seattle, Jim Poje and the families Johnson and Conner. The Jones family were also at Yosemite for the weekend and came by on Sunday morning to visit us.

The main expedition on Saturday was to Clouds Rest - a 6000 foot climb and more than 20 mile round trip. Ali and Denise climbed the Vernal and Nevada falls. The others did a little bit of this and that and just enjoyed being in Yosemite. Saturday night we all had dinner and Penny brought a cake and candles for Ali's birthday.

Truly a magical place. On Sunday Ali and I and the Dermers visited Glacier Point by car before heading back to San Jose. Just a great weekend.

And coming up...

We're off on our summer vacation at Glacier National Park, Montana with the Johnson and Poje families.

In August we're looking forward to Leslie and Nigel visiting from England, and the Strider's "Clambake 30 mile Run and Picnic". And of course the Scottish Highland Games in Pleasanton during the Labor Day weekend.

So lots of exciting things ahead.
