Griffith Park Barefoot Running with Fellow Gatos
Some of the GP Gatos & Friends
San Fernando Gatos assemble for an after run refreshment
Perfect November weather, actually a little on the hot side.
Most of the San Fernando Gatos did the Lake run 14+ miles. Chris and I did a couple 10 mile trail loops with Guillermo and Flaco. Guillermo Medina came in 1st place this year at the Angeles Crest 100. He did it in 19:33. I remember seeing both Guillermo and Flaco arrive at the 81 mile aid station still looking fresh. I think that he has been second several times. This year was his first win. Truly great trail runner. Had a chance to hear about some of his training techniques. All very useful information hopefully leading to a successful completion of the AC 100 next year.
Guillermo says that he often does 3 of these 10 mile loops on Sundays at Griffith Park. I may make it a habit leading up to the Avalon Benefit 50 Mile Run on January 14th, 2006. I need to run it in order to qualify for the AC 100.
Best, Barefoot Ted
