OK, I am going to jump on the blogging bandwagon. I have a TrailJournal for my long backpack trips/thruhikes, a Flickr site for photos and Twitter for occasionally sharing of things. My Appalachian Trail thruhike in 2007 was even covered by the Seattle Times. After an unsuccessful summer at hiking half the Pacific Crest Trail, I am looking to segue into ultra running after a few marathons that seemed not easy, but not exactly hard either. I like the trails and I like to run, my hill climbing isn't bad either. This is a blog for my running adventures, race reports. Looking forward to the adventure!
