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

Ron Herzog 50k Run (‘Tanks a lot!’)

It was a very good weekend.  This was my second time running the Ron Herzog 50k memorial run and also my first long run since Angel’s Staircase 50k back in mid-August. At first glance, it is not that appealing a run – it starts out with almost 8 miles of gradual uphill on forest roads

Annapurna Circuit Recap

How to write up ~10 days fast-packing the Annapurna Circuit? One strategy was to wait for Scotty to post his story. After being back in the states for a few weeks, this worked! Scotty’s post is a much better narrative than what I can cobble together here. Scotty has a better memory, took more notes,

We just finished a 16 trek to Annapurna Base Camp deep in the Annapurna Sanctuary. Next up? A fast hike (run?) around the sanctuary with two friends from

Annapurna Base Camp

Annapurna Base Camp

Just a short note here to say all is well. We had a beautiful walk yesterday up the valley toward Machhapuchhre Base Camp which is almost 12,000ft. We are now deep in the Annapurna Sanctuary. Great views of the mountain itself along the way (it translates loosely as ‘Fish Tail’ mountain and it has a
