Our friend Abby is running the entire Wildwood trail at the end of the month. So, why not help her train? Shit, why not run it with her? Ouch. Also I heard recently that there is a guy who is trying to connect a walking trail from the end of Wildwood all the way to the coast. Sounds ambitious.
Yes! We all need something to keep us motivated during the winter, and lets be honest, it can be really hard to stay psyched to ride in the rain and cold day after day. So, sometimes I run. A lot. On a really awesome trail that’s 30 miles long in the largest urban park in the country (right?). And it’s been really wonderful.
Oh Hey, 2014.
New year, same stuff. That’s not a bad thing. I had a great 2013 and I can really only hope to build on the direction I’ve been going. In terms of cycling, I want to continue to progress my MTB skills and experience the bliss that is peak fitness on a road bike. More fun and challenging adventures are already in the works for both, and I’m excited to see what happens.
I turn 30 this year, which feels like kind of a big deal. To be honest, I’ve felt 30 for at least 5 years, but now that it’s actually here, I’d really rather just stay 29. 29 was awesome, so I need to make 30 awesomer.
To kick things off, I run Wildwood again at the end of this month. Then I’ll promptly quit running and head to SoCal for another Trek photoshoot. After that, nothing is certain, except that it’s up to me to make this year count.
Yep, those are @theathletic and @farmleague Oregon socks peeking out. Pretty psyched to have these!

NW Summit Ave stairs, one of four sets on my lunch run. So lucky to have this as the perfect hour loop from my office.
