22 for 2022

I originally started this blog 10 years ago to record our different routes in Forest Park, because I needed a better way to organize all my scraps of paper with routes and ideas. We have done such a good job of capturing our routes that we have slacked off in the last few years in creating new routes. I have a new years resolution to create at least 1 new route a month and revisit and update existing routes. We know Forest Park so well that include directions (turn right or left) in our route descriptions. In some cases it is obvious and other times, like when you turn on Wildwood or Leif Erickson, it's not. We even get confused on which way to go at times and we are the one writing the routes! For January I decided to create a 22 mile route for 20 22. I did not include left and right, but I will go back and update this route.  New year, new route!

Looking back on what we have done and accomplished each year, and summarizing it in a blog post is always my favorite thing to write. This year is even more special: it's our 10 year anniversary of trail & ultra running. So for this year's recap I want to highlight some of the fun stuff for 2021, and some of our favorite memories and adventures from the past 10 years.  2021 almost felt like we got back to normal racing, albeit with masks, staggered start times and regulated aid stations. Honestly I didn't mind the changes at the races, especially the staggered times; it makes things a lot less congested. We must have been so eager for some sense of normalcy, because we toed the line at FIVE different races this year.   But really the best part of the last 10 years has been our friendship and our love of running in the mountains and going on crazy adventures together. There is no one I would rather have type 2+ fun with, than Susan.  We hope you have enjoyed following ou
