Spring in full bloom in Italy/Miwok 100KM

We are enjoying super weather here in Italy this Spring. All the trees are blossoming and the flowers blooming. We have both been travelling a lot, Kim to the US twice in the last 4 weeks and Topher throughout Europe for work (Lugano, Barcelona, Biarritz, Cologne most recently).

We are headed to the US this week, Kim directly to California and Topher to Greensboro, NC, then on to California later in the week. We will reconnect on Friday in San Francisco with Topher's brothers Randy & Peter, along with our nephew Travis.

MIWOK 100KM - Saturday MAY 3rd, 2008 - Watch the action live here!

Topher will be running the Miwok 100km trail race in the Marin Headlands on Saturday. The race starts at 5:40am sharp (PST) and runs north up and down across the Marin headlands towards point Reyes. The run has over 10,000ft of positive altitude change, so the calves will get their workout in on Saturday. It should be a very competitive race as many of the best Ultrarunners in North America will be there. Follow all the action live right here on race day. We will have updates at each aid station with real time feeds.
