When thunder roars, go indoors!

I was talking to my friend Pablo the other night and he asked me about adventures in Nebraska. I didn’t know what to say. Nebraska has really exceeded my expectations (which were quite honestly pretty low) but there have been no grizzly bear warnings or mountain passes. I haven’t even been stopped by the police.

Damai's sixth summit

Mostly Everest and Whatnots

Hi everyone, just a short note here before I head out for today. First, happy 16th birthday to my niece Claire Englert. Woot woot! I’m sure you will always wear your seat belt , go the limit, and give a lot space to any crazy guys running against traffic while pushing a baby jogger. Thanks everyone for

Nebraska: Help motivate me for 40 miles per day?

46 days and 1,367 miles Before getting into the last seven days and ~220 miles of running east from Shoshoni, WY across the high plains, I’d like to do two things that I have been putting off for literally a thousand miles. They sort of go hand-and-hand: First, I’ve wanted to try significantly increase my average

Damai's sixth summit

Pushing a food cart through grizzly country.

A year ago today, Damai Chiri Sherpa and I were making our way down from the top of the world.. What a trip! And, as best I can tell, Damai is gearing up for what will hopefully be  his seventh summit attempt as I write this – best of luck to him and all of

Idaho Falls to Jackson Hole, WY So before I get into the thick of it, a huge congratulations to my friends Nichole Sellon and Adam Lint for their great performances at the very competitive Miwok 100k last Saturday.  They both kicked #&*$  (6th women and 5th men) in this tough race in the Marin Headlands

Finding Trail Magic in Idaho

May 4, 2012 Seth

About 300 miles have passed since my last blog post. This one is a little long in the teeth, the next will be in a few days and much shorter. Things remain good. I’m still having fun and wanting to run. Idaho has been beautiful and there has been a lot of trail magic. I

Digging Idaho

It was a good day today.  At least the start was good. I hit the road early and had 20 miles in before 10am. But it was no use, the cloud cover dissipated and I ending up baking in the sun.  Toward the end of my run I was reduced to limping from spots of public shade

Leaving the Columbia – 10 days in…

I can’t sleep. You would think that running all day would give me a sound night of sleep. Usually it does. But it is now  4:30 in the morning.  Maybe I am a little nervous about the run today to Pendleton. It’s 46miles and except for one bend early on when the interstate turns south

Running East

…sometime I will add a post about how the idea of running across the country started rattling around in my head. And a post about others who have done it. And maybe a post about how stupid it is to do it, especially when there are so many other things to do and when your

Post Orcas Island 50k Shuffle

My gait is awkward, stilted, unsteady and just plain tired. I do everything I can to minimize how far I have to walk and breathe shallow careful breaths hoping that my legs won’t buckle out from under me. When the support of a leg suddenly disappears  my right hand invariable shoots up into the air (for
