  5. Yvonne Duckett and I became acquainted at the Morgan Hill CRC. I attended the Wildflower Run and an slowly getting back into running. As medical professionals, our center braces and plints may athletic injuries. As a matter of fact, on Saturday, April 24, from 10AM to 3PM, we’re having a FREE Sports Injury Clinic @ the Morgan Hill Centennial Recreation Center. Twelve (12) medical professionals will be available to answer questions and give instructions on not only how to avoid injuries but they’ll also give instructions on how to heal injuries much more quickly. The latest in athletic equipment will also be displayed. Hope to see you there!

    I live in Hollister and think your blog is great. I am a new jogger! I was interested in the Coyote Creek Trail, Morgan Hill Turkey Trot on the 20th. I was wondering if you had any more details on it. The linked website is a bit vague. I thought you might know a bit more because it is a local event.

    I live near SFO and for 2014, I’d like to run my 1st ultra at 50k and if I survive that do a 50m within the same year:) I’ve completed 2 full marathons road races so I’m excited in the idea of a 50k.

    Any suggestions on where I begin–what races are good for beginners? I was eyeing on the Quicksilver and Horshe Trail race in May.

    Thanks so much in advance! You have a great and helpful site here!

    Hi Karen – You probably ran it already, but just in case, I’d look at the Coastal Trail Run options. They put on a 50K about twice a month all over the Bay area, some harder than others. Their sites will show you all the elevation and course descriptions. They have frequent aid stations that are well stocked and a lot of first time 50K-ers, so you won’t be along on your quest for the 31 miles. http://www.coastaltrailruns.com

    I’m new to running and just wondering how to find out about upcoming runs throughout the bay and south valley/South Bay areas? Is there a FB page you reccomend following?
    Thank you
