As many of you know,  I was inspired to run 78.6 miles in an effort to raise money for those affected by the awful tragedy at the Boston Marathon and to honor the three who lost their lives that day. Thank you to all who crewed me and joined me on the run!!

Thank you to everyone who has made a donation to the cause!!    You can still make a donation at:  http://www.firstgiving.com/ fundraiser/EnduranceTrust/westandunitedwerununited

Many Blessings,

Patricia Moeller

Congratulations to Patricia Moeller, who was the first female finisher in the Menan Butte Trail 25k Challenge! Patricia was fourth overall with a time of 2:59.

patricia award



The Menan Butte Trail Challenge course begins at the west trailhead and ascend to the rim up a set of switchbacks. Runners had the option of heading directly up the "Butt-Buster" to the rim, but what they saved in time they surely pay for in pain. Descending into the butte's crater, everyone crosses the floor of this dormant volcano only to ascend on the other side and turn south to scramble up Slick Dome rock before their descent to the lower west rim; the course again descends into the crater and ascend the steep east side rim to the north. Runners then negotiate a technical rock maze around the north slope, returning them to the west rim and the demanding descent back down the "Butt-Buster." The Menan Butte Course is considered the toughest run in the state of it's distance.


Keep Kickin' Butt Patricia! 

Ask the Coach
Each week we will pick one fitness/nutrition question submitted by you, our clients, and feature it in this section along with an answer to the question.  All questions will be answered by one of our great coaches here at Dreamchasers.  Please indicate if there is a specific coach that you would like your question directed to.

Passing along some great advice from NBA Legend Michael Jordan: 
"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it or work around it."
Send your questions to: [email protected] with the subject heading "Ask the Coach", then check in next week to see if your question is featured!
