1 year ago today I posted my first every blog entry. I’m reposting it here because it was under my old blogger account. I first started blogging over at Live Journal, but one year ago I had the idea of setting up a photo blog of Orange County trails so that others can learn about the wonderful places where I go run. I had hoped it would help locals find some good trails to run – and from what I’ve heard it has. A month or so later I got hooked up with RBF, then BTT. When I signed up for BTT I got an IM from Jeff not long after. He’s also an Orange County resident. We met up at a race in May with RBFer Matt – and the rest is history. This blog has literally changed my life! Seriously. It’s been an amazing 12 months. Blogging maybe even have helped launch the Twin Peaks race which happens in 3 days.
moving to Southern California 1 year ago I’ve become addicted to trail
running. I rarely run on the road anymore. I have overcome my fear of
running into a snake – and for the most part my fear of running into a
mountain lion. After all, trail running is probably no more hazardous
than driving on Southern California freeways I’m not going to let a
few "what if’s" ruin my fun!
I have decided to start a trail blog. I’m going to buy the thin and sexy cool casio camera as pictured on the left. From there I am going to set
out on my task of documenting Southern California trails. There are a
lot of them so it’s going to take some time. I plan to put everything
together with pictures, trail descriptions, profiles, etc. I have not
found anything nearly this useful in all my searching.
So here is my first entry. I have nothing too interesting to post. My
first "BIG" trail race is going to be in Northern Califronia in July. I
plan on running the Angel Island 50K. There are some other trail runs I
will tackle along the way, some shorter – and one maybe longer. I may tackle a 35 mile trail race later
in the year.
I hope you enjoy my blog. Now get out and enjoy some trails wherever
