Happy to have contributed to this recent article in Outdoors NW Magazine - the 'Benefits of Trail Running.'  While some of the benefits are named, I have to say, I think we barely scratched the surface.  

Feeling inspired, but mostly awestruck this morning, having just read that Gary Robbins shattered the old Wonderland Trail FKT record yesterday.  Broke it by two entire hours.  Finishing time: 18:52.  And in high heat no less...

Spent the weekend in the Lake Chelan area.  For those of you who have the chance to visit, and like to run trails, I highly recommend running up and down Chelan Butte - particularly when the flowers are out.  Great little run with some impressive views of the North Cascades, the Southern end of Lake Chelan, and the town below.

In case you missed it, two guys just completed the first ever winter thru-hike of the PCT.  Click the image for the story.

 

 

 

 

Curious where the most and least traveled trails are around you?  Strava just released a new interactive heat map. Check it out HERE.  Below is a heat map screenshot of the Issaquah ('Issy') Alps, which is where I train during the week.
