My Western States 2010 "Video Race Report"

It seems I no longer write actual race reports, but instead bring along a video camera to capture the sights and sounds along the way. Both the Grand Canyon, and now Western States, felt like events I wanted to have some video of, since who knows when I may ever get back to these great places again.

This race was quite a challenge for a flatlander like me. I was very happy to simply finish! I hope this video gives you a chance to see and "feel" what the Western States 100 is really all about. Enjoy!

Rim to Rim to Rim for Haiti Video

I haven't gotten around to writing any sort of report from our Grand Canyon rim to rim to rim run, but I have managed to piece together some video we captured along the way.

It was an amazing experience. Very hard, but very worth it.  If you've ever considered doing it...DO IT!  I can't think of any better way to experience such an incredible place.

Rim to Rim to Rim for Haiti

On April 24th a few friends and I will be running the Grand Canyon from the south rim to the north rim and back again.  It's about a 47 mile round trip with a bit over 10,000 feet of climbing, entirely self supported.

We're raising money for Operation Rainbow's Haiti relief efforts.  Operation Rainbow sends orthopedic surgery teams to areas of the world in need.  Most recently they've been focused on addressing the needs of the thousands affected by the devastating earthquake.

The needs in Haiti are far from over, and they can't do it without your help.

Please visit our site to learn more about our endeavor, and if you are able please help us by donating to Operation Rainbow.

Thank you!
