This past weekend I spent Sunday running trails near the Toccoa Swinging Bridge. A friend and I, both of us running the Georgia Death Race, ran up and down hills along the Benton MacKaye Trail. Our route made a sort of bowl, running out for an hour-and-a-half, then turning back toward the car, then another … Continue reading Just Time on Trails and Snow
This last weekend, I took off for the hills of north Georgia for a research run. Several runners and myself signed up for the 72-ish mile Georgia Death Race for some god awful reason and now we have to train. And to train, we have to gather, which kinda happens like this: “Hey, we’re renting … Continue reading Running With Badasses: Training for Georgia Death Race
This race was forever ago, the beginning of December. I’ve written two different drafts on it, but I didn’t like them. So here it is. TL;DR — I got 4th place in a 46 miler against some stellar runners. There were a bunch of mistakes made by everyone, and it was a cold, rainy , muddy … Continue reading Pine Mountain – GUTS 46 Miler

I am actually so much better at drawing than writing, I know. I’ll return to that lesser art of … Continue reading Post of Post Its

Unless you’re a crazy person chasing podium, power march those ascents, and I guess roll like a Goron downhill. I’m excited to revisit the course, and to support the nutters … Continue reading Paris Mt Ultra Time
I took a few days off to explore Chattanooga and see a portion of the Cumberland Trail. Since my phone has been broken for nigh on 4 weeks, I wasn’t able to take any good photos, but here are some from the area that I explored, nabbed from rootsrated (such a cool site) and the rest … Continue reading Cumberland Trail: Tennessee’s Beautiful Upcoming Trail
The first ultra I ever ran was the Paris Mountain 50k in Greenville, SC. It is nuts nearly a year has passed since then. The course is tough, with steep climbs and descents on mountain bike sections. Sometimes you’ll use all fours climbing the path. A section of the trail tosses you into a Tarzan-esque … Continue reading Anybody Considering Running the Paris Mountain 50k, Do It!
