Inaugural Modesto Marathon

Modesto will be having an inaugural marathon on March 21, 2010. It will benefit Teens Run Modesto. It is based after a program called Teens Run LA. It will target at risk kids with the hope of redirecting their life in a positive direction. Here are the links for the Modesto marathon and Teens Run Modesto.

Come on out and enjoy!


I've been a bad blogger. Really not much to write about. I got into Miwok 100K in May so that will be my focus for the first half of the year. I also put in for the lottery at Way to Cool but didn't get in so I've offered to volunteer. This is what I have on the calendar for this year (so far):
February: Surf City marathon
March: Volunteering at Coyote Two Moon
Volunteering at Way to Cool
Inaugural Modesto Marathon (Volunteer coordinator)
Oakland Marathon
May: Miwok 100K
Modesto Classic (co RD)
June: Volunteering at Western States.

Not a lot! Looking forward to training though.
On January 13th I went over to Lake Chabot with some fellow ShadowChasers and had a nice 12 mile run. It was nice to see some sunshine which is a nice break from the valley fog!

The following weekend I went to run the "unofficial AR50 training run" hosted by James Barstad. It was awesome. Good weather, great people! We carpooled down to Cavitt School and ran to Auburn Dam Overlook, 21 miles in total.
On Sunday, ShadowChase running club hosted a Run of the Month. It was a preview to the Modesto Marathon course. We started at 11th and M and finished up at the 14 mile mark. I ran an additional 2 miles with a gal named Melissa who is training for the Modesto Marathon. This will be her first marathon. The rain held off and it was another great running day.

Connor was my training partner, you can barely see him in the photo above which was taken at mile 7. Roos also rode his bike.

Run fun....
