About my blog
Welcome to my trail running site. I enjoy being on the trail where I can take in nature and clear my mind. I prefer running in the mountains, but anywhere rural will do. I have completed four 100 mile trail races and many other ultramarathons. I'm a member of Team Red, White and Blue. "Enriching the lives of America's veterans."

Zion: The Narrows
polypro shirts, because the water is chilling me all the way through.
Orderville Canyon. Our party has separated by the time we reach this spot and Betsy and Raymond turn back. The rest of us continue with Ricky and Gustav leading the way. Pretty soon I see Ricky trying to swim against the current. I also try to swim, but am not making any headway. I’m freezing and feel like a drowned rat. I give up and float back towards a shallow spot and then Scott discovers a trail on the other side of the river. This takes us over some land and then we are back in the water.
A special thanks to Gustav for the use of his excellent photos.
