Here is our ongoing story of what we do in between our more adventurous adventures. We’ll do our best to keep this ongoing post updated with our attempts at making life adventurous, within the context of an apartment lease, having a job, and going to school. (Last updated: 1/29/15)

A 29 mile loop in the North Cascades with a total newbie backpacker from the city? I learned that I know more than I thought about living outside.

What’s Coming Up

Saturday, January 31st, 2015: Rocky Raccoon 100 Mile Trail Championships

We just can’t seem to get enough of this race and Matt will be giving it a go for the 4th time, hoping for his best finish yet. We love this race because the course is all runnable, it’s fast, the race director and volunteers are fantastic, and the overall atmosphere has made such a lasting impression on us that we keep going back for more.

Sunday, March 15th, 2015: LA Marathon

We’re getting the Marathon Madness crew back together for a flat, fast marathon on a point-to-point tour of a course in LA, from Dodger Stadium to the beach. All of us are hoping for fast times in the race and good times back together with some of our family down in LA.

Saturday, June 27th, 2015: Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run

This one’s a biggie. Matt had a 4.7% chance of getting into this race in the December lottery, and lo and behold, that lucky duck got a golden ticket to the race. For those ultra newbies out there, it’s like the Boston marathon of 100 milers here in the States. It’s sure to be awesome, especially if Matt runs well.
