This weekend got some good slow taper training in before Primal Quest. Friday headed out to the Darrington area with Krissy and the Montrail crew for a day of running and frisbee. The run goes out past the abandoned mining town of Monte Cristo. It was hard to imagine a bustling metropolis where there is now just a trail and trees. Krissy and I got in a nice 12 mile run in by continuing to Barrow Pass and back.
Saturday I got "the runner" out on a mtn bike... she took this pretty cool shot of me in the new Hammer kit.
Sunday ran an out and back 15 miler at the Middle Fork of Snoqualmie with Justin Angle - he's running Western States 100 Saturday - Good Luck Justin!
I'm an ultra distance athlete who incessantly seeks out backcountry adventure. I'm an UltraRunner by trade, but I'm a multisport athlete at heart. Ski mountaineering in the winter, trail running and cycling in the summer. After 10 years in Seattle I moved to Salt Lake City because the Wasatch Mtns are simply amazing. I'm from New Hampshire originally, where I learned to "Live Free or Die". In December of 2005 I decided my desk job at Microsoft was in fact death... so i quit. I've been gettin' after it in the backcountry full time ever since. I coach, train and write the Ask the Coach column in TrailRunner Magazine
