A cool 12 mile run near Moab, up Pritchett Canyon and down the Hunter’s Rim trail above Hunter’s Canyon.
A big lolloipop loop around Cronin Peak with several bicentennial 13ers and lots of time high on ridges.
Thoughts and photos from some course recon days on the Nolan’s 14 route.
We’ll leave it to the Wall Street Journal to ask that question, in a story that ran in Tuesday’s paper about Christy, 14ers, her training, and more. It was a cool story, and considering how often the press misses the mark on topics outside of their expertise, I think they did a really good job. (more…)
The summer wouldn't be complete without getting out on the Four Pass Loop. There was actually a good amount of snow on the peaks after a recent round of cold, bad weather-- kind of unusual for this time of year. It sure made for a pretty day and a great run. (more…)
With one week to go before the Elk Mountain Grand Traverse, Christy and I wanted to get in one final long training day. We had a lot of ideas for fun new ways to log some miles, most involving high ridges and/or summits, but as the day approached, the weather once again made the decision for us. We would have to fall back on an old favorite— McNamara to Margy’s—...
Christy and I are both registered to run the Bear 100 in a few weeks, we thought it would be a good idea to do a long trail linkup from our Bear training playbook two years ago– Snowmass to Conundrum.
We pulled off a fairly large adventure run around Snowmass, Capitol, and Daly last weekend, a linkup of trails we refer to as the Superloop. We frequent a good number of local trailrunning loops in the range of 18-26 miles, and we thought this longer loop fell into its own category, hence the nickname. (more…)
We had a great run on the Four Pass Loop last Thursday, an ideal escape from the madness of Aspen on the 4th of July. The trails are dry and the flowers were setting up to be in full bloom soon. (more…)
Christy and I went to Twin Lakes to run Mount Elbert last weekend, a favorite outing of ours and a pretty novel running experience considering it’s the tallest mountain in the state.
