10 Trail Running Lessons

Here are a few trail running lessons that I have learned over the past year. I thought I would pass them along to see if you can relate to any of them! Don’t eat eggs before you run.

Mount Baker: Ice Climbing

 “Did you see the BCMC call out for a trip to the Mt Baker seracs to do some ice climbing? Do you want to sign up?” This was the question I received in a text from Leigh one morning in October.

He had flown Ron and his friends up to the Cabin to do maintenance on it. While he waited for them to finish we talked to...

Tantalust, Part II: Dreams and Reality

< Tantalust, Part I: my little Everest   *pop* I screamed out in pain and shock as I looked down and watched my left ankle collapse and roll underneath me. I heard an odd popping sound come from my ankle and felt a weird crunching sensation. I dropped to my knees…   Thoughts from the events of a year ago were circling through my mind. Pain, it seems, is the bodies way of reminding the head of that which it hopes to forget. My...
