Near the end of summer Cody Goodwin and I will be running 50 miles of the John Muir Trail in Big South Fork. This trail has been on my radar for some time as it was the first long hike I took in my youth. I can still recall severe pain and blood from blisters on my feet, being scared out of my mind as lightning struck all around our tent, and chiggers galore. It took us four days to finish. I thought, “Why would anyone ever do this?” Two weeks after I could not get the experience out of my head and my love for the outdoors started.
My first concern is not the distance but the fact that I’m running with Cody. It is all I think about when prepping. I want to perform and not be a hassle for my friend. Another thing that worries me is we will have no aid. Cody’s comment was “We’ll just haul our stuff, we won’t need much.” My hand sweating to his response on the keyboard as I try to act cool, “Okay.” I will start posting short updates on the News linkat HardWin if you’re interested in hearing about the sure to be ill-fated HardWin Adventure.
Trail Days – Trails are hard to make and even harder to maintain; which is why we need the trail running communities help. Every trail runner should contribute to building trails, so we are going to host a few trail days this year. Please see below if you’re interested. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
