Carvins Cove to McAfee

I was supposed to be helping out judging Forensics yesterday. The dramatic readings and poetry kind. Not the dead bodies and blood spatter kind. But then Janky Left Pinky Toe said it was cancelled. Cancelled? But if my volunteer commitments are people are gonna make me run 50 miles in the ice and snow. … Continue reading Carvins Cove to McAfee

Another .1 Christmas

You know in movies? When some emergency situation happens? And someone inevitably loses their shit? And just turns a standard emergency into an absolute shit show? I get angry. Like, screaming “get your shit together moron!” at the tv kind of angry. I got sucked into the rabbit hole that is Grey’s Anatomy at the … Continue reading Another .1 Christmas

Patterson Mountain Mileage Vortex

First day of break. So obviously my alarm was set for 4:30am. We had a 20 mile run on tap. At a spot I’ve never been before. I don’t think. It’s actually hard to tell. Anyway. 20 miles. At a new spot. So that A League and Dude With The Charming And Disarming Smile could … Continue reading Patterson Mountain Mileage Vortex

That I'd shared this vulnerable moment with. By saying, "Sounds like you're just solidifying." Solidifying? The fuck does solidifying mean? Is … Continue reading Lightening Up

The DeFo Special

“Should we be worried about the wind?” There are probably a lot of things we should be worried about, BB. We do enough dumb shit. That running through the outer remnants of a hurricane seems like child’s play. Except also this route is definitely not child’s play. Basically, how this works, is Beautiful Beastie gets … Continue reading The DeFo Special

Cove Mountain Struggle

“Que haces hoy? Trabajando?” That’s what the Mexican restaurant dude asked me. As he handed me my food. After glancing down at my feet. Nope. Como se dice I’m just gross. “Ok. You go have a nice day.” I should note that this was the same restaurant where, a few years ago, I confused and … Continue reading Cove Mountain Struggle
