Rickey Gates  Running Every•Single•Street in SF this Fall. Why not?

Sierra-Zinal is happening this Sunday. Next best thing to racing it will be following it live as one of the @goldentrailseries. .
2nd photo... that you @jonospulse ??

A year ago today (ehem, well, yesterday) I finished a five month journey across the US. The experience was transformative at times, transcendental at other times. It allowed me to understand my fellow beings in a truly empathetic way. It reintroduced me to myself. .
I’d like to take this anniversary to announce my next adventure that I hope to be every bit as informative and exciting as the last - to run Every Single Street in San Francisco. 1200+ miles in 40 days (Oct-Nov). .
More information coming.... in the meantime, please check out my website for thoughts and inspiration. .

My Grandpa was an avid movie maker. I’ve recently digitalized his footage from 1942-1968. Found this gem. I think 1942 in New England. Not sure what the event was but it cleared the stands!

Life at fourteen thousand feet. .

From Maroon Peak I watched two very different parties of climbers attempt variations of the Bells Traverse. One, helmet clad, chattering, moving nervously, cautiously and the other, casually grazing on scant vegetation and climbers urine (they love the salt), while trotting rapidly along the delicate sandstone spine. Both were interesting to watch. But one of the pairs photograph a bit better. .

Somehow I got nominated as the lighting forecaster during our cheering mission of the Hardrock 100 this past weekend. Scariest lightning story of mine was the humming of my ice ax on the Grand Teton a few years back. What’s yours?

This is Ted. Ted is the man. Ted just finished his tenth Hardrock 100. That’s just one of the many amazing things about Ted. Another one is that he will be joining us on both of our Hut Run Hut migrations later this summer/fall. Yay, Ted! Photo by his equally amazing life partner @aspenchristy .

A biologist, a geologist and a mustachioed photographer run up a mountain.

Learning, learning, so much learning. .

Beautiful ridge running through the La Platas with Neal and Shaun. Taking in the rarity of Colorado humidity.

Matias is going coastal. It happens sometimes up in the far reaches of Alaska. Leaning into a strong headwind along the Anchorage Coast a couple days back. .

4 of my favorite Alaskans: Max, Matias, Hilly and Timo our on the windy beach below the bluffs outside Anchorage.

The Pioneer Ridge Vertical Mile costs $5. I’ll let that sink in for a second.

Ben pushed me really hard today. It was great. It made me realize I’ve been avoiding the so called pain cave due to having perhaps spent a bit too much time in it last year. I enjoyed the focus that it provided and a renewed craving for an ice cold chocolate milk.

The run was a 25 mile loop through the Chugache Range outside of Anchorage. Pioneer to Bold. 25m 11k of feet for vert. .
Oh, and we saw a wolverine. .
