Next week Monday, Mike Muench will be leaving for the mainland and Canada for an ambitious series of ultramarathons over the next several weeks. In the mix are four 100 milers, starting with Lean Horse next weekend, and finishing with the Bear, with only one or two weeks between each of the four. Mike's last event will be a 50 miler, I suppose as a relaxing recovery run, or something like that. At 57, Mike has recently blossomed into a true trail runner, with PR's on every ultramarathon of late, including a first-time finish in January at the HURT 100. I can still remember a time when I could beat the guy. Oh well.
Mike should be out on the Trek course at some point in time on Saturday, so when streaks by you, give him your aloha. Aloha Mike ! Don
