|Stolen from The North Face EC California-Championship Homepage|
Without a doubt, my experience at the TNF EC in 2010 was very pleasurable and since then, I've been wanting to go back. One moment I remember vividly in 2010 was coming over a ridge on the Coastal Trail still early in the morning and looking out over a foggy Pacific Ocean and seeing a light on the water illuminating a sailboat. These moments are what captures the imagination of my soul while trail running. I'll be looking forward to similar experiences on December 7th.
p.s. - what will happen if the government is still shutdown come Dec. 7th, since the race is run on a NPS unit? :-)
