TTT: Birthday, Wonka & more WC50k

1.  Today is my son's 7th birthday.  This is kid # 5 in our zoo of animals.  I love him to pieces and am so glad he is part of our family.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDREW!!!!
 Is he handsome or what?!?!?  He looks just like his father!!

2.  This weekend (Friday & Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.) 2 of my other animals are in a local production of Willy Wonka.  They have put in some long hard work and I'm excited to see them on stage doing what they love.  If you are local (or close enough) come put and see it!

3.  If you are interested in seeing the results from Wildcat 50k you can check them out here.  You can also keep up to date on next years WC50k by keeping tabs on Larry's blog QC Runner or the newly created fb page.  This event is growing each year.  If you think are you are even slightly interested keep tabs of this race (don't worry though, I'll be reminding you), it's one you don't want to miss.  To help sum up the greatness of this event this message was also posted:

More than 160 runners braved a forecast that included a "100% chance of rain and isolated thunderstorms. Despite the damp afternoon, we raised more than $2500 for the park and the Friends of Melpine School. You have contributed over $6000 towards a playground project to be constructed at the park since the first race 3 years ago.

Thanks to all who helped. I would say more, but I am tuckered out. Running a 50k sometimes includes running a 50k. We will be tabulating the results shortly and posting. 50k finishers will be listed in the article for UltraRunning.

The best complement of the day I think came from Lynn Hawbaker, a veteran ultra runner who said Wildcat 50k captured the true spirit of trail running....a bunch of friends, running around in the woods, not too much organization, and a good time. I liked that.
