nicklauscombs this was one of those typical runs where i came across an abandoned hiking pack in the woods. well worn and sweated through. i ran down the trail a tenth of a mile to find what appeared to be a fresh shallow grave for an animal. candle wax all over the ground and a candle lit & burning. twenty seconds later a tree crashes fifty yards up and i took off at a world record pace. only looking back every so often till i was safely away. you know. your average monday. in light of being totally creeped out i cut this run short. 5.25 miles. 817 feet of #upness total. #irunthisbeard #xfiles #iwanttobelieve 4d

nicklauscombs as always. big thanks to those that keep me geared up and nutritioned up. came home to an awesome restock of udo's oil from @florahealthy as well as new arm sleeves and a #running hat. if you're looking for the best #vegan / #plantbased omega 3, 6, & 9 supplement you don't need to look any further. mix it into foods or take it by the spoonful like i do everyday. this stuff rocks. #irunthisbeard 1w

nicklauscombs after being stuck in traffic for over an hour on my way to the weekly wednesday group trail run. at least 10 ambulances up ahead. a helicopter having to land on the highway. all of a sudden it didn't matter if i didn't make it there. threw a u-turn and headed back home. grateful to be healthy. privileged to be able to run. ended up with 6.26 miles around the neighborhood. 7:27 per mile pace. #irunthisbeard #perspective 1w

nicklauscombs the magic elves over at @udhydrates left a new wasp pack on my doorstep this weekend. my old wasp has thousands of miles, lots of sweat, and memories to last a few lifetimes. looking forward to breaking this new one in. #irunthisbeard 2w

nicklauscombs i first heard about the documentary film "women of the mountains" which is currently traveling the world and filming women of many different backgrounds running some of the toughest mountain races and documents their own struggles in dealing with the gender & cultural issues they face as women & ultra runners. this film is going to be incredible. go give them some love at their "women of the mountains" facebook page and look out for a kickstarter soon. so you can imagine my surprise when the visionary of this film rebecca byerly (who lives in india) joined us for 20 trail miles this morning. happy saturday everyone! get out there and have some fun! #irunthisbeard 2w
