Mad Mike's Masochistic Medley

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

Hey Mike--Met you at Leland's trout farm before the Bear. You were helping us load gear for the Bloomington stop. Sorry I missed seeing you there. Hope you enjoyed the journey in Utah. Congratulations!

Much Thanks!

David I grabbed one of the rocks from the Crack at Halape when we were there swimming with the Mermaids. Couldn't get more luckey than that. No sense in writing about that one, who the hell would believe it. ehhhh???

Aloha, Mike

Hey Mike,
Have a great adventure. I noticed that you have been running really strong over the last few months so this should be a piece of cake for you! I hope you will be posting very graphic blogs for all of us to "feel" what you will experience. Good luck and see you when you get back. Aloha, Lar

Best of luck to you Mike, you madman, on your upcoming undertakings. Keep an eye out for any landlocked mermaids, or low flying, flying saucers. Don't forget to take a lucky lava rock with you!
