Single Step

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. Lao Tsu

More fun pixs from the AC course/PCT trail fun times.
This is my last big week and then it's taper time for the Tahoe rim trail 100 which is next week. The following week I will head out on the JMT to try and get the woman's unsupported record. I have to do it in under 6 days 6 hours. If I feel good it shouldn't be a problem. It's not the smartest think to do the week after a hundred but it's the only time I have to do between hundred mile races.
Even if I don't get the record I will still stay out and finish fast packing it. I just love that trail it will be the 7th time I have done the JMT.

Williamson climbing area. Williamson rock.

Just want to wish all my crossfit friends good luck at the Crossfit games this weekend. I hope it's not to hot for you there.

8 mile run today.
3 rounds for time of:
25-kettlebell swings
25-abmat sit-ups
25- squats
my time:6:15

Good luck, no that you need it, with all the miles in 6 day 6 hour time frame. Your amazing! Kick some dirt!

Lao Tsu is my favorite! Awesome scenery! I don't know those trails at all.

Take care of yourself in the coming weeks. I fell and bashed my knee last weekend, and even though it didn't seem like much at the time, the knee swelled up when the run was over and I can barely walk since! Be careful out there! And I know you'll have a blast (wish I was going too).

I have a bracelet with that Lao Tsu quote. Cool.

What trail is the JMT? I'm a dork, I know.

Good luck! You'll do great. Most of all - have a GREAT time. I wish I could go with you.

Hey Coyotegirl your not a dork. It's the John Muir trail. It goes from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney.
