Hiatus, End of Hiatus

February 4th, 2013 by Stacy

- Ritual is important. That’s why, this winter, I broke my foot. Specifically, my fourth metatarsal. It keeps alive a streak of four years — or is it five? — in which I’ve sustained a moderately serious injury between Thanksgiving and Civil Rights Day. So I’m on a bit of a hiatus from running, which gives me an excuse to end my hiatus from blogging.

- We’re proud to support the Zion 100 and Bryce 100. Prior to my injury, I was getting out regularly with race director Matt Gunn and our mutual friend, Justin Nelson, on different sections of the new-and-improved Zion course.  On one such outing, I had the chance to record a bit of shaky POV video, always a crowd favorite. So if you’d like to sample the Eagle Crags portion of the course, here’s the link to that.

- A bit late, but I’m calling Jared Campbell the Wilderness Runner of the Year. When Hardrock probably isn’t one of the top 3 toughest wilderness runs you complete in a year, you’ve done something pretty special. Also, the stuff he consistently dreams up, especially the offbeat multidisciplinary stuff, really puts him in a category of one. I’m thinking here of Wasatoja and Zironman. All with no fanfare, which makes it all the more admirable.
