    Tough, because abs are not tough. But feels really good to be doing this.

    Windy hill to bench 7.2 mi 03:30 29:09 pace

    In and out to bench. First hike post-JMT, with brace on, ankle was fine on uphills and just slightly weird on downhill. A four snake hike - two garters, very different colors, and two (!) fat ratt... read more

    good Pilates mat 00:55

    Post-JMT rehab. The body is stiff and creaky after 200 miles. Back to Pilates after months away. Hard.

    Down down down the rocky, pounding 3000 feet from Trail Camp with a farewell visit to my favorite creekside gardens of pink-and-yellow shooting stars. And so the John Muir Trail was accomplished! ... read more

      Wonderful last-day recap! I've been telling everyone - yes, it was amazing and beautiful, but also very hard. That's why we do these things, I suppose. :-)

    The glorious, exhausting, heart-stopping, lung bursting, diamox-aided ascent of Mt. Whitney from the West! My second time ever on top and it was everything. Descent predictably painful and nauseous... read more

    Oh Bighorn Plateau, you are stunning. And our first views of Mt. Whitney from the West! But the miles between Bighorn and Crabtree were a long, pointless up-and-down slog, and surprisingly un-scenic.
