To hike from Mexico to Canada and back, a man needs strength and speed and luck. He needs something else, too. If only he knew what it was.
I’ve saved this article for years and came across it this week while going through an old office box. It’s one of my all-time favorite sports adventure articles, published in 2005 by Backpacker Magazine and cleverly written by Steve Friedman. In 2004 Scott Williamson was the first person to yoyo the 2,560 mile Pacific Crest Trail—hike from Mexico to Canada and back to Mexico in one season! Rumor has it, he’s hitting the trail again this month to take back the overall PCT speed record. Thanks for the inspiration Scott!
Exploring the mountains on two wheels. 54 miles with over 5,000’ of ascent from Boulder, gorgeous! Borrowed a bike from a buddy and got dragged out by my wife and her friend. Forgot how great it is to be on the bike!
Love this trailer for Dean Potter's new film about his amazing pup, Whisper! I shared many miles out on the trails with my dog, Tonto, and people often questioned the safety and responsibility of running a dog sometimes 40+ miles in the mountains. Can a dog be happy and share the same level of passion for something we love to do?
Had a blast guiding a blind runner, Luanne, in the Bolder Boulder 10k this morning! She did awesome, finished in 48:08, 5th place in her age division (52 yrs)! Thanks Achilles International Colorado for the experience! Congrats to all racers & Happy Memorial Day!
