Maybe I'll check it out this Tuesday - I usually just through Monument Valley Park am usually feel like the fish swimming upstream when the Quinn runners go by me LOL...I'll skip the beer though - I don't like it LOL but if I ever find one I like and/or can deal w/the smell then I may drink beer LOL...thanks for info!

Yeah, you show up and sign in. No real paperwork. Do 10 runs (sign in 10 times) you get the Quinn's Running Club shirt. Do 100, you get a cool long-sleeved shirt. Totally social deal..knock off a 5K, knock back back a couple of beers. We've been down there several times this spring and it's a blast!

so what's the deal w/Jack Quinn - do you just show up or is there paperwork to fill out....since I work downtown I might check it out, but not too thrilled w/having to deal w/crossing the streets w/the traffic LOL

Hey Sonal, guess that means we'll be doing the Garden of the God 10 miler together....we should hook up afterward to celebrate our accomplishment...You'll great I'm sure. If I can sign up for the Ascent at my age (I turn 45 right before the Ascent) you can do it and will do awesome!

Trudy - I am with you this year - I just turned 40 and signed up for the Triple Crown with the Ascent - I am quite nervous!
Comment by Brian McCarrie on April 4, 2010 at 10:16am
Good luck Trudy, remember the race is a celebration of your training. Train hard and smart so you can enjoy the mountain on race day.

Go for it Trudy! We're looking forward to hearing about your progress..keep us posted!
Comment by Trudy L DeCoronado on April 4, 2010 at 10:03am
Looking forward to doing my first Ascent....my kids think I'm crazy in the 1st place for even taking up running at 44 let alone reaching my goal of doing and finishing the Ascent....oh well....I'm STOKED!
