Dawn was that you and Steven up on Eyesore last weekend? Thought I recognized you, wasn't sure. Seems like I always come across your preserve pass and backpack at the bottom of some climb I'm doing, too.

Dawn, I will look out for a Gunks.com shirt then \:\)
I will be the big chick with long red hair in a braid and wearing a bright orange ball cap.
Looks to be such a pretty course. All finishers get a cowbell - gotta have more cowbell.

Steven, Todd and I were on Eyesore on Sunday but 2 of the 3 of us were on the ground at any given time.

Lisa, I'll look for you. I think I'm wearing grey shorts and a light green shirt and possibly a blue hat with mosquito netting. Some fairly recent photos of me here: http://dawnalguard.com/climbing/2007/04/whole-enchilada.html I'm the one with the white helmet/sticking her tongue out.

Congrats to Dawn for finishing her first trail race/first 50K at Pinelands on Sunday! Steve finished the 50-miler in impressive time also. Results are not posted yet so I do not know how I did overall, just that I was SLOW!
It was lovely course and a very well organized race. The ales on tap at the finish line feast were delicious. \:\)

If you were slow, what was I?

Steve came in 4th overall and got to take home a unique looking plaque for winning his age group.

Lisa is a hell of a hill hiker. It seemed like for a long time I was running and she was hiking and I wasn't gaining any ground on her. Then I was completely dead and she swooped past me to an impressive finish. I need to learn to pace myself and churn up those hills like she does.

They ran out of beer!!!! (but they brought more in later so I did finally get one)

You were doing really well for your first run at that distance is what you were, babe - especially since you had not even run marathon distance before.
Nice going for Steve too - 4th overall and 1st age group.
Good thing they organized more beer or there would have been some angry ringing of cowbells.

Nice positive report, Dawn. I LOVE when I see a hill up ahead because it means I can legitimately slow to a walk \:D

Thanks. In case it's not obvious, you're the friend at the finish line. It really meant a lot to me that you guys were there. Even though we just met, the few times we touched base on the run made me feel like I had a support system.
