Its been awhile since I’ve posted but thought I’d just throw up some pictures from some recent running adventures. I’ve been out in the mountains and running well since getting married in June and spending the summer in Europe. All systems GO for training and it’s looking like 2014 is going to be a BIG year. It may be the year of the….HUNDRED. Race season will start with Orca’s Island 50k in February and we’ll see from there. Next weekend I’m hopping in a beastly 60k in Idaho called Standhope that should be interesting. I am in no way prepared but I am looking forward to seeing more new beautiful mountains, namely, the Pioneers. I’m just happy to be back and running on trails with racing on the mind. Only time will tell what the future will bring…

  1. These pictures make me think you’ll be ready for my little race. I changed the course a bit for the easier, but don’t underestimate how difficult the terrain will be. See you this week, glad to have you!

    • Thanks Ben, ya I’m looking forward to seeing some new mountains…don’t have any really expectations for the race considering I took two months off from running this summer. But we’ll see what I can do. Interested to see how I feel at 11k feet. :) Looking forward to meeting you this weekend!
