Would Someone Please Raise My Taxes?
California has no property tax revenue to speak of, so the state parks are in the crapper. I wasn't sure that I was going to run it this year, because I might very well be in the worst shape I've been in in five years, but it's a crying shame that the Diablo 50 Miler was canceled this year thanks to state park cuts. I've run it the last five years (it's been around for seven) and it's a terrific butt-kicker of a course. 13,400 feet of climbing and it always magically falls during the first 90-plus-degree heat wave of the year.
