Mountain Magic. This past weekend Shonny Vanlangingham won the XTERRA Mountain Championships in Beaver Creek, Colorado! Shonny went kinetic on the bike course, delivering the fastest split of the day, eventually finishing the race more than seven minutes of runner-up Sara Tarkington.
Coolest part of the whole event was that Shonny’s Dad rode trekked his motorcycle all the way from Texas to watch race- the endurance thing runs in the blood for sure!
Shonny’s win at the Mountain Championships is her third in the 2010 XTERRA US PRO series, and puts her on due course to become the National Champion. The series consists of six events – five regional championships and the Nationals. The USA Championship race is in Ogden/Snowbasin Resort, Utah on September 25th. Shonny sure to SHINE.

Mike and Sandy Ferreira exfiltrated Oahu to run the Napa to Sonoma Valley Half Marathon. Something about wine tasting and running they said. Either way, they are the only 2 people we know who can speak of such things and still win thier age groups. A shot of sandy in perfect stride.
Anna Mathisen teamed up with three other wahanie waterwomen to win the Women’s Open 4 Division race at the
John D. Kaupiko Regatta. Paddling on Girl!
Paul Sibley, Real Hero. Paul aided 7 lost hikers to safety the other night. His experience proves something most of know, and learn over and over again. It is not so much about the finish line or end of the journey- but starting it, and what we see, learn and do during it.
Paul explains in his own words that follow. A shot of Paul on the trail.
Good on ya Man!
