mountains. sunshine. pine trees. single track. wind. movement. sweat. effort. dust. silence. grit. laughter. water. breath. rest.
I am not a fast runner. In fact, I’m not really a runner at all. The movement my body makes while out for a “run” can best be described as a “jog-scoot”. That’s fine. Just give me the steep trail, a meandering path through aspen and pine forests, past alpine meadows and lakes, and I will be happy.
After a few trail ultra-marathons the last couple years, we (yes, we) have decided that 2014 will be the year I train for and run the Leadville Trail 100. This blog will be a record of the next year. Of running–ah, scooting, musings and photos of my time on the trail.
Thank you for your support and inspiration.
