Tri Team Southwest Ride Review
Last Saturday's ride with members of Tri Team Southwest
turned out to be a lot of fun. E.P Higgs, Mike and Steven
Montoya, Matt and Cathy Perini, and Christian Krueger, and
nine more riders from Tri Team SW, rode the 50 miles from
the Owl Bar to the Santa Fe Diner and back in cold and
sometimes moist weather, but having all that company on
this long hard ride made the miles go by much
faster. Having a chile cheeseburger waiting at the end also
helped. Thanks to Mike Guidicissi and Tri Team SW for this
Shelter Shuffle 5K Moved To March 29th
The real planning for the Shelter Shuffle 5K has started,
and as a result, things are changing. Matt and Cathy Perini
and event organizer Camille Scielzi attended the APAS
meeting on Tuesday January 14th, and APAS was
excited about the event and the chance to raise community
awareness of their organization and the work that they
do. However, since the planning is starting so late, SSR
asked to delay the event until March 29th.
APAS will be providing most of the volunteers needed on
race day, so start planning to take part in this
race. Don't forget that the $10 race entry fee all goes
toward APAS. For the non-runners, there will be a walking
event. For both events, dogs are welcome, however, they
must be leashed.
Schaffer Wins Handicap Series
Kim Schaffer showed the consistency that has characterized her
performances during the Fall Running Series once again on
Tuesday, January 12th's 5K run. Fred Yarger left first
and held the lead through the race, holding off a hard-charging
Matt Greenley. Kim finished next, followed by Robert Abernathy
(in his first loss of the series), and Bill Brundage.
Thanks to all the members who participated in this series, and I
hope that it helped to augment your off-season training with a
little fun racing. Many thanks go to the volunteers who came to
the races, including Laura, Christian, and Cathy.

Chupadera Wilderness Trail Run Set For February 2nd
Meet at the Chupadera Wilderness Trail trailhead on February
2nd, at 9AM, for a group run to the top of Chupadera
Peak and back. This trail is within the Bosque del Apache, and
climbs nearly 2000 feet in about 5 miles. The run takes between
1:30 and 2:30, depending on your ability.
To get to the trailhead, drive about 6.5 miles south on NM Hwy 1
from San Antonio. Turn right off NM 1 about 1/4 mile south of the
railroad crossing. The turnoff is hard to miss; it's the first dirt
road on the right past the railroad. Pass underneath the railroad
bridge on this dirt road, and drive to the end of the road, about
