I HOPE YOU ALL HAD A JOYOUS CHRISTMAS AND THERE WERE A COUPLE OF ACTIVE TEAM MEMBERS WORKING OUT THIS PAST WEEKEND. Mike
CAITLYN BARKER in SD along with her boyfriend has a list of things they want to do together before he deploys next week to Guam where he flies the H60 Sierra Helicopter for the Navy. If you live in San Diego you’ve probably seen these big workhorse copters over Coronado training. Well one of their laundry list items was to hike a local Mountain Cuyamaca. They did it on one of the coldest (below freezing) and windiest weekends of the year. But the climb was well worth the view from the top down to the Salton Sea plus they topped it off in the small mountain town of Julian, CA enjoying their famous Julian apple pie.
CAITLYN WISH GOOD LUCK TO YOUR BOYFRIEND AND THANK HIM FOR US SERVING OUR COUNTRY!
EDDIE STRICKLER from WA ran the 29th annual Cable Bridge Run in Pasco, WA. It must have been a large 5K because Eddie said he was the first to cross the finish line but someone that started after him actually won with his chip time. He ran a fast 16:59 and did end up 2nd overall. Eddie had a blast catching up with old running buddies after the race.
AND if anyone is interested I’m leaving from my house in Poway this Friday morning (yes taking the day off) at 9:30 AM (too cold earlier) for a 55 to 60 mile ride. Some of you know the route that goes past the Wild Animal Park and climbs up to Ramona then loops back to Poway. It’s a fairly difficult ride but a ton of fun with a bunch of Sun! Call me if you are going to make it 619 742-0580, 16888 St. Andrews Dr. Poway.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
