It all started when Mike, Russ, Terry, Joe & Gary wanted to find out what it would be like to run from Paso Robles, CA to San Luis Obispo, CA...with a twist.
We would start at the Paso Robles Train Station, follow the train tracks and tunnels south, over (and through) the grade, drop down Poly Canyon to Monterey Street, down Higuera Street and end at Firestone Grill with our friends and family, a beer and a burger. 31.25 miles...a 50K!
We completed this Trek in 7 hours, 45 minutes (due to a long pit stop at a Santa Margarita market, some rain and having to wait for Joe (me) a few times, who was hobbling around).
With no 'serious' injuries and plenty of family and friends to cheer us on and greet us at the end, we had a great time, formed a unique bond and enjoyed an experience we may never forget...
