September 25th was the Javelina Moonlight Run. It's meant to be a pre Javelina Jundred training run but I used it as my last "long run" before the Nike Women's Marathon. Kelly Nash joined me and her bicycle buddy, Sue Berliner decided to participate at the last minute also. There is something kind of cool about running in the dark out in the desert. Aravapai Running puts on both events and I have to say that I just love how great Jamil and Nick Coury race direct. The aide stations were great and running Pemberton Trail is always a nice change from road running. No spectacular results as I was super conservative. Had a bit of a ankle/knee twist and so I slowed way down. I think Kelly was there for the food so we chatted, ran and walked in the dark. The moon rising in the sky during the first hour or so, was beautiful. We stopped at one lap (15.5 miles) but others kept going for 2, 3 and 4 laps. They're all super human in my book!
Sue Berliner, Kelly & E at the finish.
