Yesterday I went on my longest trail run so far. For 20 miles I ran through forests, on top of craggy passes, on snow, and navigated many water crossings. It was my first run over 4 hours, trail or road. Running for that long is no big deal when everything is so heartbreakingly beautiful.

When I got back to sea level and drove through Seattle, I replaced the Goodrs I trashed on my first ever wipeout a few days ago. It was a very good day.

Long runs can be like this?! I'm well on my way to a trail running convert. I woke up in a forest and then climbed 3300 ft of elevation...I'm hooked.

I could get used to this high altitude running thing.

The maiden voyage in the 4R begins after months of planning, designing, and building. Mattress covers complete, bins loaded up with running crap, cooler stocked with film and beer.
Happy Independence Day, everyone!

My training for #pikespeakmarathon started in earnest today. I've been doing hill repeats and stair climbs in NYC, but this was my longest trail run to date: two hours of dodging rocks, roots, and (only one) mountain biker. No altitude yet (!!!), but the midday sun was an added challenge. This ain't the road or weaving and bobbing up Flatbush--it's an entirely different beast. I loved every minute of it.
And my #altrasuperior shoes are fucking awesome.
