I’ve raced up stairwells all over the United States, and last year I raced up the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Earlier today, I competed in my second international race, at the iconic CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario, Canada!
Although it’s a completely different country, Toronto is only about a 4.5-hour drive from where I’m living in Read the rest of this entry »

It’s only the fourth month of the year, but I’ve already raced more in 2019 than I did in 2011, 2012, and 2013 combined. That’s because I’m in the middle of my #40years40races challenge, which is my quest to compete in 40 races in 2019, in honor of my recent 40th birthday.

This past weekend I went to Temecula, a beautiful wine-producing area about two hours outside of Los Angeles, for a wedding. I was a groomsman, and I clean up nice, if I do say so myself!
The wedding was a blast, and I’m so excited and happy for my friends Amber and Nandor, the bride and groom, but this post isn’t about the wedding. It’s about the hike I did that morning. Read the rest of this entry »
