Ty's Seattle Dirt Trail Tour

the last few days have been pretty sweet... patagonia and nuun ultrarunner ty draney flew into seattle for a whirl wind tour of our trails. living in wyoming ty hasn't seen dirt for a long time. here in the pacnw we've had some great crazy storms and some low freezing levels that have left our winter trails pretty covered. so i wasn't so sure i would be able to come through. but with ty's arrival came some warmer temps and we got some good multiday training on actual dirt.

thursday: 12.47 miles total - 8 miles at cougar mtn, spin class, 4.7 mile night run at discovery park

friday: 20 miles total - 10 miles at bridle trails, lunch at microsoft with matthew, hike up poo poo with cory and a 10 mile run down the poo poo and high school trail and back. darn near hypothermic by the end. very blustery day as you can tell from the video!

saturday: 32 miles in one shot with 6,000 feet of climbing! what a great day. ty and i joined justin angle, scott jurek, jeff philips and tom ederer for about 22 miles from cougar mtn to squak and back with a little bushwhack.. then ty and i banged out another 10 more on our own. we followed that up with dinner with my good friends the copsons in issaquah. amazing way to finish a great day. thanks copsons!

Very cool! Next life I want to come back with your speed and endurance! It was fun seeing you all climbing up Wilderness Cliffs at Cougar last Saturday. Great job!

Nice training camp, guys. It looks like you had a blast in the wind! Now Ty won't have any excuses come March for not getting in any trail miles since Sept.
