  • Day419 Grayson Highlands 50

    Why running this race? The race promised a course that is beautiful, hard, and they have ponies! It was definitely hard even with long cutoffs and a shortened course. The beauty of the place does make up for the hard run. I love mountains. I love the view. I got to see the highland from […]

  • Day393 Waterfall mountain

    I finally made it to the Waterfall mountain, a place I mentioned a few weeks back (WTF). It was really a WTF WTH kind of trip. Actually this Christmas break, I got to do two of trails I wanted to do after what seemed to be a long break. One was the Waterfall mountain (WTF) […]

  • Day303 LH#4

    I decided to go to PA this weekend. Staying at a campsite tonight. Normally, I go into the woods and camp to my heart content, but my mom is with me. She can’t do the wilderness survival stuff I do, so we are staying at a more civilized campsite, where we have bathroom and we […]

  • Day298 The Peak

    I am so happy after what 3 months of staying at home, I am finally back on the trail. Indeed happy trail. I guess I could always go by myself. The park is always open. Some do if you know where to go. Shenandoah was going to stay open until too many people misused it […]

  • Day297 getting closer

    Another day likes one before. I am not ready for a random Friday 🙂 Weekend starts soon. I have my fingers crossed. Tomorrow will be busy because I have a bunch of things to do to get ready for Saturday. I won’t likely be posting a Random Friday post on Saturday morning as I have […]

  • Run report

    Day 228 Last week was low mileage for me with a total about 9 miles. Lowest so far after having 50+ for last three consecutive weeks, but I figure I needed the low mileage rest. As usual, Monday was a rest day. After three weeks of running, I was grateful for Monday Tuesday: 4. Easy […]

  • The boring stuff / trip Laurel#1

    Day 226 I left several things hanging in previous posts, because I ran out of time. Usually I write my posts either going to work or traveling home. I try to squeeze everything in before I ‘pass out’. I have motion sickness, so if I stare at something too long while in motion I get […]

  • Wild Oak Trail BP

    Day 182 It was a wild and wonderful weekend. On Friday I was supposed to be headed down south to Roanoke for a tripple crown hike/camping trip (McAfee, Tinker Cliff, and Dragon tooth) but God (or the hike lead) had a different plan. Plan was changing from the start. I was supposed to run the […]

  • game on

    Day 181 Though I don’t have much to say, this weekend instead of running the High Bridge Ultra (50k) I will be heading south and west for a backpacking trip. I will probably the last one until Patagonia. I will be packing tonight once I get home. I have a bit of running to do […]
