Trail Running – Gear & Snacks

I’m doing solo trail runs that are 14+ miles every weekend, and climbing. In the next few weeks I’m planning to complete a 26.9 mile loop I’ve had my eyes on. As my runs are getting longer and temperatures are going up, I’m going to have to start carrying more. In order to get used to carrying a load, I’ve been packing as if I’m planning 25+ miles for my

Trail Running

Over the last four weeks, I’ve averaged 33.5mpw running (had a low week, most weeks are ~36 miles) and, those miles were done at a somewhat faster pace than the previous month.

Fresh Start

Since starting this blog back in May 2016, we’ve accumulated some 206 posts. That comes to average one post every 4.5 days, which seems impossible – we must have gone through a few periods of heavy posting to offset the periods I remember more clearly… the periods of not posting at all.
