13 Stages in under 7 hours!! πŸ’₯🀯 . . We had an awesome, small RO/staff squad. Managed to crank thru all of the Western States stages basically before lunch πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ₯— I shot mostly like πŸ’© overall (which is right on par for my normal performances with iron sights πŸ™„πŸ˜›) but I had an amazing time meeting the challenge head on with some great folks! Can’t wait to see all of our friends and fellow competitors come through #Stage10 on Saturday and Sunday where @gunshinesteph and I will be posted up as Range Officers ⏱ #westernstates #wsssc #riosalado #singlestack #championship #skinnygunshowdown

TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL: my best hiking partner and my son @benjacks stands just below the summit of Missouri Mtn in Colorado during a September assault in the Collegiate range a few years back. That is ominous Ice Mtn in the upper left; not quite a 14er but a very difficult climb. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #westernstates #fourteeners #summit #mountains #adventure #collegiatepeaks #sawatchrange #colorado #hiking #hikingadventures #sunglassesandmountains #co14ers #14ers #14ersofcolorado #missourimountain #climbing14ers #mountaineering #outside #abovetreeline #icemountain #cool #toocoolforschool #toocool #septemberhike #coloradohiking #coloradooutdoors #livinglarge

Those 8 inches of snow were no match for me and @mooneymillions (who graciously agreed to get out for a second run of the day). I had hoped to get in another #10k but decided that getting to 20 miles on the week would be sufficient. It was great to have the band back together and to run on a trail that was freshly plowed and free of those crazy drifts! . . . . . #trailrunning #ultrarunning #ws100 #ultrarunner #westernstates100 #running #trailrunner #mountainrunning #wser100 #westernstates #trailandultra #runner #ultramarathon #runnersofinstagram #trails #altrarunning #zerolimits #trailrun #seeyouinsquaw #instarunners #run #runinrabbit #wser2018 #skyrunning #keepitwild #utwt #7on7in7 #mydailyrun

What a race! Finished the 100k in 13:10, shortly after sunset. My goal was to finish under 17 hours to secure a lottery entry for Western States. Thanks to everyone who sent kind words of support from afar. All the positive energy helped push me forward to the finish line. Thanks to @ashworth.aaron for dropping me off in the morning and (getting stuck in the mud in the process) and meeting me at the finish line. Shout out to all the volunteers, @jamilcoury and @aravaiparunning for making all of this possible.

Western States qualifier #4 βœ”! I signed up for Black Canyon 100k outside Phoenix on Megan's Megan's recommendation last Oct. Immediately, Kelly and @segallglass told me they were going to crew for me...because they're amazing like that. Mary also joined my team. By race day we had 7 runners and 6 friends making the trek to AZ. This couldn't have worked out better. Unfortunately, at 4:30am of race day, the route was changed due to too high water crossings. Of course I appreciate the race team keeping us safe, but the new course was a series of out and backs on technical trail that's about 2.5 feet wide. It wasn't ideal. But, we adapt. It did allow us to see each other throughout the race and a lot of the time it worked out that we ran together. That was fun. Mary had to get in a 20 mile training run so she joined me as a pacer at the end. With her, the time flew by. I don't know how I got so lucky to have these incredible friends in my life. My fitness was on point thanks to @bobshebest and @point_positive coaching. But, as usually, my stomach went south. I probably should have just vomited but instead I walked too much the last 5-7 miles fighting the nausea. It was frustrating because my legs were feeling great.Β Figuring this out is my #1 priority in the next six months before TRT100. My watch died, and I forgot to look at the clock at the end, so I'm waiting for the results to be posted to find out my finish time. It was within a few minutes of 15 hrs. With the WS qualifier on the books, the rest of the year is all fun and games. Many thanks to the Black Canyon team and many volunteers, our friends who came to support us (Kelly, Sue, Mary, Sue, Emily, Julie), Coach Bob, and Jason for supporting me as I go off on these crazy adventures. #bc100k #blackcanyon #trailfriends #westernstates

Nature gives chances and you take them. I was driving back from a long hike, and i happened to see cows, and a sunset next to me. So I stopped the car and took a bunch of shots. This is one of those shots. . . . . #utahunique #southwest #americanwest #westernstates #utahnationalparks #utahphotographer #vacation #nationalpark #moabutah #travel #travelphotography #trail #nature #picoftheday #instagram #instagood #hiking #sunset #landscapephotography #natureperfection #animalkingdom #neverstopexploring #sunsets #pictureline #winter #nikon #tbt #pictureoftheday #snow ❄️

Those silly sunsets 🧐. One moment you find yourself fighting against the sun cause is too bright to see the road , next thing you know, you pulled the car over, and spend the next 30 minutes appreciating those simple moments. #utahunique #southwest #americanwest #westernstates #utahnationalparks #utahphotographer #vacation #nationalpark #moabutah #travel #travelphotography #trail #nature #picoftheday #instagram #instagood #hiking #sunset #landscapephotography #natureperfection #neverstopexploring #sunsets #pictureline #winter #nikon #eupolia #viewbug #tbt #pictureoftheday #deserto
