It's that time of the month again...time to gear up for a 10K fun run with one of the finest mountain backgrounds around. The Sierra Nevada are finally living up to their name, now adorned in more typical winter attire courtesy of this recent round of storms. Race #1 had Juneuary conditions and, as luck would have it, the up-coming brief break in the storm cycle is timed with the next race this weekend: 9am, Saturday, February 21. Highs are expected to be around 60 after a morning low in the upper 20s with calm conditions. I don't know about you but that sounds perfect to me for an appetite-inducing hour of running on the dirt roads of Millpond and the Tungsten Hills. The roads should be in great shape with the recent low elevation rain and snow firming up the beach-sand zones. Post-race, you can satisfy that hunger with Great Basin Bakery bagels, orange juice and bananas, and re-fueling products generously donated by a few of Sage To Summit's vendors: Endurox recovery mix, Accelerade, and an assortment of Clif items. As the sun climbs higher in the sky, the after-race socializing should heat up as well. You can question Phil Kiddoo about how is year on foot and bike is progressing (Here's some gossip juice: I was astonished to see him in a vehicle last week.). So pull that favorite pair of running shoes out from underneath all your ski gear and come join us on Saturday. My Cascadias are polished and ready to roll.
