Female FKT on the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim


FKT: Fastest Known Time.

a few weeks ago i got an offer i could not refuse.  two of the fastest female ultrarunners on earth asked me to join them at the big ditch and document their adventure.  i was in desperate need of some consistent dirty trail, so i left a few days early and stopped in fruita, colorado.  i love this place.  i ended up getting to run the desert rat's trail festival trail 1/2 marathon.  it was fun to run anaerobic for almost 2hrs.  great training, if you haven't seen the scenary take a look at the quick twit vids i took of troy's and mary's loop which were part of the race course.

i then met the girls at the big ditch.  a good nights of sleep and they got started at 6am on the dot.  my video of their adventure:



devon's blog on the adventure
krissy's blog on the adventure

... and my fav photos from the day.





CONGRATS ON SPEED RECORD GIRLS!.. rumor has it the speed record was set even lower by Darcy Africa just a few days later. i love to see girls chargin!


** what camera did i use for all this?  the GoPro HD Hero
