Boyer’s Furnace 40 Miler – A VHTRC Fat Ass

The Boyer’s Furnace Fat Ass was held on a beautiful Saturday in late December. Blue skies, sunshine and temps in the 60’s made this challenging 40 miler even more of a treat.

New Year’s Eve Sunset Trail Run – Shenandoah National Park

On the last day of 2013 I was lucky enough to run a favorite mountain trail, with someone I adore, and chase sunset through the mountains. A climb up Buck Hollow to Mary’s Rock with a breathtaking sunset, a champagne toast and a fun, dark descent back to the car to a delicious picnic of ahi tuna and veggies was a spectacular way to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Here’s to a fabulous 2014 full of mountains, trails, miles, friends, laughter, adventure, love, happiness and possibility!
