San Diego 100

Congratulations to my friends that finished the San Diego 100 mile endurance run. Bill Ramsey finished 6th overall with a time of 23 hours and 29 minutes. This guy is a 50+ year old stud who simply keeps churning out great times and results. He also brews a mean beer I hear. I checked Bill's time as I was tipping beers in his honor yesterday, and he was WAY back in the pack. Things changed quickly though, as temperatures rose, Bill moved through the pack quickly and into 6th place overall. Bill has given me major input for WS 100, and the main focus is of course to run very conservatively during the first 50 to 60 miles.

Also completing their first 100 mile run where Gina Natera-Armenta (26:44), 1st overall woman! and Greg Hardesty 26:57. Good job guys, you rock! I've run with both Gina (Unknown ultra) and Greg (Saltwater and Unknown Ultra) and both of them are great talents. Gina picked up running less than just couple of years ago and Greg did his first ultra run (over 26.2) at Saltwater 5000 in 2006. These two have been gunning ever sense.
