I had to go see this place for myself and what I saw was more striking than I had imagined....

Jumping Jeff and I were getting our kicks off #route66 and on the #trails @brucelee ... #brucelee #everymileamemory #nailedit

F! Earning our view scrambling atop Mt. Sneffels, elevation 14,150ft. Breathtaking beauty in more ways than 1... πŸ” #runsteepgethigh #mountainrunning #everymileamemory #mountsneffels #earnyourview #trailrunning #trailrunner #hiking #getout #outside #landscape #mountains #adventure #nature #colorado #climb

This rad story and #fbf is brought to you by this stud: Meet Jack Huff, who in 1929 hiked and hauled his ill mother (and kitten) to the summit of Mt. LeConte by strapping her to a modified chair. She had been longing to see the summit's rugged beauty but true to their name, The Great Smoky Mountains cloudy nature offered poor visibility. But I'm thinking what was lost with sight was gained with insight.... #truegrit #love #ocrtraining #og #spartantraining #mountains #greatsmokymountainnationalpark #strength #powerhike #respect

"When the bib is on, it's on." - JC

This picture nicely captures 3 of the pivotal conflicts we are constantly in competition with: - Man vs Self (Our own goals, fears, doubts and limitations, perceived or otherwise.) - Man vs Nature (Encountering the course, terrain, elements and conditions. Constantly seeking to maintain optimal performance levels by making adjustments in pace, effort, clothing, hydration, nutrition, etc.. ) - Man vs Society (Battling with and against other runners. Though pursuing different external objectives, each subject striving for similar internal satisfaction: To maximize and actualize our own potential. This is living and this is to be real.

I think it was The Bangles who sang, "It's just another man crush Monday, I wish it was Sunday, cuz that's my fun day, my I don't have to run day...." Actually, I am going to run today and for those of you that do not know, as recently seen on NBC's Spartan Team Challenge, this is my boy @kevingillotti . Many great times with my brother from another and a few not so great but that has made us even stronger to last longer - that's how we both roll. And even though he is more cut than me now, has better tattoos and he's driving one of my dream cars, I'd recommend that if you're not already follow him and you're interested in being entertained, educated and or enlightened on a daily basis, check him out online or coming soon to a race near you...#bros #friends #spartans #mcm #spartanrace #ocr #thebangles #stfu

Now this is what I'm talking about: An epic sunset is my favorite time of day but tonight I'm going to settle for an indoor workout (just 'idling the engine') while thinking about Hardrock runners and watching Le Tour de France. By sunrise though - another special time, I'll be rising, shining and grinding in the mountains...#crepuscular #twilight #sunset #lifesabeach #belikewater #sunsets #pacific #photography #nature #beauty #surf #landscape #earth

But sometimes the grass really is greener on the other side. I find myself missing the lush vegetation that surrounded us in the spring so I remind myself that 'For everything missed, something else is gained; Every sweet has it's sour'. That each color, each shade, each passing season has something to offer, #carpediem #ralphwaldoemerson #inknburn #lasramblas #run #runner #motivation #dig #push

Le Tour is such an incredible event. Has me all fired up to keep pursuing my own mountains and goals, starting with even more cross training. I've always been a fan but to extend my 'shelf life' and stimulate my mind, I find it so essential. In the past and still to a extent now, I use The Tour as my own personal boot camp time period where I, in some form or another, daily try to mimic each stages emphasis. So for example hilly runs or rides on mountain stages, time trials or intervals during TT days or prologue, flatter runs or rides with sprints/accelerations on flat, sprint oriented stages and active recovery during off/travel days. #crosstraining #crosstrain #mountains #ride #mountainbike #mountainbiking #mtb #exercise #training #fitness #goals #workoutmotivation #workout

"Young man, seize every minute of your time. The days fly by; ere long you too will grow old. If you believe me not, see here in the courtyard how the frost glitters white and cold and cruel on the grass that was once green. Do you not see that you and I are as the branches of one tree? With your rejoicing comes my laughter; with your sadness start my tears. Love, could life be otherwise with you and me?" #brucelee #carpediem #love
