Weekly Trail Update #3: April 9 – April 15, 2018

Welcome back for another trail update! Day 15: Jerry’s Cabin Shelter to Bald Mountain Shelter – 25.6mi Last night was another sub-freezing evening. It had started to snow as I was going to bed and although only about a quarter inch accumulated, the drop in temperature was difficult to manage. I felt like I didn’t …

Welcome back for another trail update! Day 8 – Cable Gap Shelter to Russell Field Shelter – 21.6mi Today was one of my shortest days. I got up at my normal time, after not sleeping too well as I accidentally set my tent up on a hill and was sliding all over. At one point …

Weekly Activity  Long Run This weekend’s training was a bit of a hodge-podge, which was fun. On Saturday, Veronica and I went down to Alaminos – one of our favorite spots on the island – and ran along the beach for a few miles. Here’s the Strava info: Then, we whipped out our picnic basket …

Weekly Activity  Long Run This weekend was the long-awaited Akamas 50k race! All went to plan and it was a great event. Spoiler alert: I didn’t come close to the podium. Instead, I took it nice and easy to avoid any risk of injury and enjoyed the views. There was a great turnout and the …

Weekly Activity  Long Run My long run this week (yes, only one) took place on my favorite section of the Besparmak Trail in the North of Cyprus. This area has spiderweb-like trails that go in nearly every direction with seemingly endless routes of varying difficulty. Because I am preparing for the Akamas 50k race …

Weekly Activity  Long Run This weekend’s long run(s) was a nice “two-fer”. I took the day off from work on Friday and went to explore this village called Mitsero, which is known for having a huge pyrite mine and a “red lake” that has been stained by all the runoff and chemicals. Truth be …

5 Ultrarunning Skills I’ll Bring on The AT

I’ve hiked more miles in my life than I’ve run, but a couple of years ago I picked up ultrarunning and have been borderline obsessed since. For me, it’s the perfect blend of a high-intensity workout and all the best parts of hiking (scenery, trails, nice people, etc.) without the big packs and slow pace. …

Weekly Training Log: 1/22 – 1/28, 2018

Weekly Activity  Long Run This week I scouted another section of the Besparmak Trail in Northern Cyprus, one which was included as part of the Two Castles 50K I won last May. This section is scenic, rugged, and a bit overgrown, but it was a lot of fun nevertheless. I began at Tatlisu Pass, which …
