Harriman/Bear Mountain Reconnaissance Run: Part 1 by Bix Posted Mon 27 Feb 2012 3:16pm Earlier in the week my plan was to run the 17 mile western portion of The North Face Endurance Challenge 50k at Bear Mountain on Saturday On Friday morning we had an inch of snow on the ground and it poured on the drive home. Wind advisories were issued for Saturday with temps in the high 30s but with 45+ mile per hour gusts the windchill ... Read on »
Bear Chase 50k – My First Ultra by runaroundaroo Posted Mon 30 Sep 2013 6:56pm I have officially ran my first ultra – the Bear Chase 50K – so I guess that means I get to start calling myself an ultra marathoner, right? It feels weird to say that. In the grand scheme of things 31 miles really isn’t that far, especially when you consider 50 miles or 100 miles or more. And this 50K was hands down easier than any of my marath ... Read on »
Chilkoot Trail, Day 2 by 321delish Posted Fri 02 Aug 2013 8:45am I awoke to a rustling sound outside of the tent. Bill! I whispered as loudly as I could so I would wake him but not the other campers. There’s something outside our tent. Get the flashlight! That we needed a flashlight meant if was probably somewhere between 11pm and 3am, though again I was clueless about time. I also don’t know why ... Read on »
Directionally Challenged. by runaroundaroo Posted Thu 27 Sep 2012 1:13am So about this trail running thing. It happened. But not as planned. First, I befriended my snooze button. Which is code for “I slept in”. I’m not surprised. Second, it was raining when I headed to class. So I wimped out. A little pathetic. But I’m sugary sweet and I clearly would have melted into a puddle of adorable. Clearly. ... Read on »
Black Bear Half Ironman by Chris Fotache Posted Mon 14 Sep 2009 9:50am Yesterday June 1st, 2008 I completed the biggest race of my life. It was the longest, toughest, hardest athletic activity I ever did. Considering my training, the result should be considered as miserable, however I had a blast, it was one of the most awesome experiences of my life, and I'm looking forward to the next one. I went to race with ... Read on »
Chilkoot Trail, Day 3 by 321delish Posted Sun 04 Aug 2013 3:27pm We woke up to a chilly, foggy morning. (this was actually after some of the fog had burned off) Bill and I both agreed that we were happy to have hiked down from Happy Camp last night rather than this morning- walking on the narrow trail would have been tricky! And, we would have missed some beautiful scenery! It was early in the mo ... Read on »
Shepherd Lake/Ringwood State Park Trail Run by Bix Posted Sun 26 Aug 2012 6:46pm Last weekend I completed my first trail run since my injury without incident. Now I felt it was time to begin to focus on my next event. The Mountain Madness 50k hosted by the organizers of the New Jersey Trail Series . My road runs have been going well but I've had only one recent trail run under my belt so this weekend I decided I would ... Read on »
2 weeks to Black Bear - Reviewing my training by Chris Fotache Posted Mon 14 Sep 2009 9:50am Finally I'm done with heavy training and beginning to taper. The two weeks that are left are for easier, shorter workouts as I finalize my plans for race day. Let me quickly go over the training. I made up the plan myself, inspiring from several online plans and from my own (limited) experience. The plan was made over 18 weeks and I changed ... Read on »
don’t hike the North Coast Trail by Rick McCharles Patient Expert Posted Tue 18 Sep 2012 12:00am (the “standard” NCT) by site editor Rick McCharles One of the best hikes in the world is the North Coast / Cape Scott Trail on Vancouver Island, BC It’s PARADISE … so why are we NOT recommending it? Read on … The NCT is a “backcountry adventure“, not a hike. There’s a reason some groups manage only 1km (.6m ... Read on »
Mississippi Lake by Randy Lloyd Posted Tue 15 Mar 2011 12:16am Manzanita Point Road (view east) The historical roller coaster ranchlands of Henry W. Coe State Park are a great place to spend some trail time, especially during the late winter and spring when you get the cooler temperatures. Beside all the natural runoff in the streams and creeks, the entire sprawling tract is dotted with m ... Read on »
