Do an UltraMarathon with Gary

Calling out all runners looking for a new challenge in their running.

Train with Gary to complete an Ultramarathon.

An Ultra Marathon? You gotta be kidding me!

Actually no. I did an ultramarathon last December, and I can tell you it’s not that hard.

You just need to train for it. You need to do the work. You need to prepare physically, mentally, and spiritually.

I’ve done it. Now think about it. Most of you have run 26 miles. And the Catalina Marathon warriors ran some of the toughest 26 in any race in the world.

I’m proposing you only run 7 miles more. 33 miles total. In Big Bear California. With a lot of the run on the Pacific Coast Trail.

And if that is too much there is a 15 mile trail run that day which will be perfect training for the Beach Runners.

Over the next week I will be putting up a training schedule.

Hopefully you can join me for many of the runs.

1. Wild West Marathon / UltraMarathon
3M, 10M, Marathon, UltraMarathon
Saturday May 5th, 2007

The third oldest trail marathon in the United States after Catalina and Pikes Peak.
Run with the snow covered sierra mountains in the background.

I will be camping and making a weekend out of this trip.

I am undecided if I will run the marathon or ultra this day.
It will be close to race day decision.

2. Holcomb Valley Ultramarathon, Big Bear CA
Sunday June 10th
33 Miles

I figure this will the perfect first ultramarathon for the Beach Runners as it is close to Los Angeles, scenic, and beautiful.

So let me know if you are interested in doing any of these two runs or training with me.

If want to train with me, do yoga classes after runs, get personalized coaching etc, I will be asking for donations to a new scholarship fund that I am starting for Cambodian university students. More details on that to come, but this is a vision I had that needs to be turned into reality.

So if you’re interested please…
