My best performance of the year was the Burning River 100 Mile.
I was fit for the first time in years and focused to run.
Conditions were hot, but I ran strong and steady.

Hi, Mark,

You do not know me but I am a fellow Zip athlete. Perhaps you made it to the reunion last summer? Your blog was forwarded to me by Doug Reese. I am always interested in seeing how well fellow athletes, especially Zips, are doing.

Congratulations on your fine accomplishments. I wish you well on future endeavors.

Go Zips!

Regards,

Paula (Good) Mattei, '84-'88

PS. Sorry if you got this twice. I am new to the google scene.
