Settling in at Base Camp

Settling in at Base Camp

Hi all, I’m keeping this short and then will (maybe) come back and edit more as most of my internet connections to date have been lousy with updates lost to the netherworlds. I’m not sure how fast the email report goes out for those millions who have subscribed – but consider visiting the actual web

Seattle - Tacoma Airport 170lbs of gear!

Onwards to Everest?

Not sure where to start…Right now I am in Namche Bazaar which is around 11,200ft and is basically the last stop for ‘modern’ conveniences – before trekkers and climbers head deeper into the Khumbu. I was here last September when my friends Alex and Tandra and I did some trekking and climbing. That trip planted a

Look at that!

Gorges Waterfall 50k

Had a great run with Kelly and friends at the Gorges Waterfall 50k. This was another nice race by James Varner from Rainshadow Running. There really were too many waterfalls to count! Full pics are on picasa but a few are below. I’m sorry to miss the Yakima 50k next month but I know Rich,

Dominican Republic – Family Reunion

Sitting in the Seoul airport 3/16 with some time to kill and thought I would finally try to do a little write-up about the trip to the DR that Kelly and I made a couple weeks ago. I’m going to fudge the date on this post so it matches the DR trip end (2/26) and

James kicking Kelly's ass (again)

Orcas Island 50k

Ran this super fun, super tough 50k with Kelly this weekend. The run was put on by James Varner of Rain Shadow Running. James always throws a good run and it was as much fun as last year except colder. Around mile 20, I mentioned that all I could think about was food and Kelly

Cedar River 50k

Stairs on Saturday with Kelly and then the Cedar River 50k yesterday. What a nice combo. The Cedar River Yours Truly 50k was, ummm, pretty flat. In fact, the most flat miles I’ve done in a run since the Rainier to Ruston 50m. Stands to reason since both use a lot of reclaimed railroad bed.

Double track

Pigtails 50k

 Ran Pigtails 50k yesterday – was just as much fun as running it one year ago with some added sun. Kelly, Pablo and I carpooled down and arrived a couple minutes before the start. Pablo blew by us during the first lap and then morphed into a volunteer. Kelly and I ran two laps together

Kelly at the start

Capital Peak Dumbass (Half)

It’s been a while since I’ve done an organized run, but had a nice run with Kelly at the Capital Peak Dumbass. We ran half of it as an out and back, just missing the rain and seeing how things feel in anticipation of more runs coming up. Lots of nice people and nice trails.

Vancouver Island Roadtrip

Been meaning to write this for some time – it’s now 12/5 and this road trip just before Thanksgiving with Kelly was a ton of fun. The pictures have been online for some time. The idea was to have a scenic drive and visit the little town of Tofino on a little peninsula on the
