Trash Cleanup July 29
Due to the difficulties we've encountered in cleaning up our
adopted section of Hwy 60 (first low turnout, then rain), the
members present at the July meeting voted to try again on July
29th. We'll meet at the east end at 7PM and make our way

Mountain Man Triathlon
- Magdalena-Kelly Run
The big race of the weekend was the annual Magdalena-Kelly
run, a 7K climb from Magdalena to the old church in Kelly
on Sunday. This year's overall winner was the awesome Kim
Schaffer, and many other SSR members competed, including
Robert Abernathy, Sandy Nolen, Fred Yarger, Laura Jean
Wilcox, Steven Montoya, Addy Bhasker, Bill Brundage,
Shorty Vaiza, and Matt Perini. Full results will be posted
in next week's edition.
Thanks to the Magdalena race organizers for another great
race. As usual, the race went off without a hitch and it
seems that everybody gets at least one prize after the
- Bottomless Lakes Triathlon
On Saturday, Matt Perini and Robert Abernathy traveled to
Roswell's Bottomless Lake Triathlon, a 400 meter swim, 14K
bike, 4K run event at Bottomless Lakes State Park. This is
one of the shortest and fastest triathlons around, and at
times it seems you don't have a chance to breathe. Matt
finished the swim second in his wave (the first of two),
and got out to a lead on the bike for a short time before
being caught up, finally finishing third in the Clydesdale
division, 17th/80 males. Robert was saving his strength
for the Magdalena-Kelly run on Sunday, and finished 9th in
a crowded age group, 47th/80 males. See the complete
results at http://members.trailnet.com/oles.
Christian Krueger competed at the Mountain Man Triathlon
in Flagstaff, Arizona over the weekend. Christian did the
1.5K swim, 40K bike, 10K run race in 2:13:38, finishing
26th/222 overall, and 8th/33 in his age group.
