Haven't posted in a while. Picked up miles too quickly, and ended up tweaking the knee pretty badly. The back of the knee felt really tight for a week or so. With the bike broke, and summer coming up I havent done much. I can't risk hurting myself further, so I've been listening to the body, and taking a lot of time off. Today was a beautiful day to test out the knee with a 5 mile walk. Not too bad. A little tight in the beginning, but at mile 2 the knee felt fine. Hopefully in the next week I can start running a lot.

New kicks, who dis? 
I've always loved the foam, and fit of @hokaoneone, but I've always had problems with stack height. Luckily I found the Evo Rehi, so I get that same foam and fit, in a much more reduced, minimal shoe. Pumped. Now just gotta break them in.

@theresadomenico4144 has been killing this half marathon training. Today, was her first ever 10 mile run. Dialing in nutrition, and hydration on our last week of training. It's been pretty great helping a friend with running. Can't wait to see this half marathon go down.

Right knee has been bugging the crap out of me. Downhills are straight painful, and I know I need some time off, but it's sunny.... so skies out, thighs out! Better get that beautiful sunny single track while you can! I'm sure the slopfest will commence again soon! .

"The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us. Thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing. The trees wave and the flowers bloom in our bodies as well as our souls, and every bird song, wind song, and tremendous storm song of the rocks in the heart of the mountains is our song, our very own, and sings our love." - Muir

Yesterday was a crazy long day at work, followed by a beautiful, cold, dark run home. Always fun to bust out the headlamp, and get some backroad sunset miles in. 
Today however, on @theresadomenico4144 training run weirdly got a ton of snow. Hopefully this snow chills out.

"Why do you flee so soon, sir, to the theaters, lecture-rooms, and museums of the city? If you will stay here awhile I will promise you strange sights. You shall walk on water; all these brooks and rivers and ponds shall be your highway. You shall see the whole earth covered a foot or more deep with purest white crystals . . . and all the trees and stubble glittering in icy armor." - Thoreau .

Looking for a cheap adventure? Try running in about 14 inches of snow and ice covered roads. Luckily as I got to 4-lane roads cars would move to the inner lanes, letting me run on the road. Unluckily I broke my @yaktraxtraction. Looks like it's time for a new pair! "...Law of thyself complete, thine own track firmly holding, (No sweetness debonair of tearful harp or glib piano thine,) Thy trills of shrieks by rocks and hills return’d,	 Launch’d o’er the prairies wide, across the lakes,	 To the free skies unpent and glad and strong." - Uncle Walt

Today was a proud day. We had planned on running 7 miles, the farthest @theresadomenico4144 has ran, but with the rain and cold I wasn't sure what would end up happening. As we got to the crossroads I told T "it's cold, and it's raining. 5 miles is your go to long day. It's nothing to be ashamed of if you want to do 5 instead of 7." And it's true. We are ahead of schedule in her half marathon training. We could have easily skipped the 7, and worked on it next week. But what did she do? She ran across the road, to the 7 mile loop. 
With this kind of sport you have to mentally be okay with the idea that this will hurt, this will suck, this won't be easy; but it will give you life, and show you, you can persevere, you're worth the fight, and that the best views come with the hardest routes. 
I don't consider myself a coach, a leader, or some know all athlete. I'm a fat dude that loves running, and I love sharing the joy it can bring. Today was a proud day. To watch a friend say they are worth that suffering. That the easy road isn't the right road. To see someone else find some happiness in this dumb sport I love so much. Proud of you, buddy.

I love these cold rainy days. It means muddy, gross, single track, and water filled gravel. It means the paved trail is empty by 4, and the only light is from my headlamp. It means slow steady music, and getting lost in my own mind. But most of all it means I get to bust out the best running shoes ever made, @newbalance 110v1. These guys are over 7 years old, have thousands of miles on them, almsot no tread, the upper has holes, and they smell like death, but they're still easily my favorite shoes. If only New Blanace made them like they use to.

It was cold, and windy, and after my 11 hour shift, it was all I could think about. Perfect end to the day. Now it's time for some stretching, some food, and some sleep. 
In the middle of my shift I got an email saying I had made it on to #teamnuun for a 2nd year! Super pumped to be back at it with such a dope group!

Some days suck. It's raining, it's cold, you've been at work all day, you didn't sleep well, you're hungry, and it just doesn't sound fun. It sounds like work. But you lace up your shoes, and head out anyway. The cold burns your lungs, and the rain freezes you down to your core; and in that pain you find a little peace. You realize nothing happens to those that wait. That life either drives you mad with contentment, or drives you mad with passion.

You don't realize how much you've ran in a pack until you buy a new one... I guess my @orangemud Endurance Pack has seen a lot of miles... Great 12.5hour work day, followed by a dark 5 mile run home. Always an honor to share the roads with the moon and stars.

"We are now in the mountains and they are in us, kindling enthusiasm, making every nerve quiver, filling every pore and cell of us. Our flesh-and-bone tabernacle seems transparent as glass to the beauty about us, as if truly an inseparable part of it, thrilling with the air and trees, streams and rocks, in the waves of the sun, - a part of all nature, neither old nor young, sick nor well, but immortal. Just now I could hardly conceive any bodily condition dependent on food or breath any more than the ground or the sky." - John Muir

It's crazy how 5 miles on the road seem to go on forever, but 8 miles in the mountains never seems like enough. Great to be camping along Cooper Lake. My @marmot tent didn't work as well as normal, breaking a tent pole and all, but luckily I had an extra tent spike, and some tape.

"concerning the message that was transmitted to me under a pine tree in North Carolina on a cold winter moonlit night. It said that Nothing Ever Happened, so don't worry. It's all like a dream. Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don't know it because of our thinking-minds. But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever. Close your eyes, let your hands and nerve-ends drop, stop breathing for 3 seconds, listen to the silence inside the illusion of the world, and you will remember the lesson you forgot, which was taught in immense milky way soft cloud innumerable worlds long ago and not even at all. It is all one vast awakened thing. I call it the golden eternity. It is perfect. We were never really born, we will never really die. It has nothing to do with the imaginary idea of a personal self, other selves, many selves everywhere: Self is only an idea, a mortal idea. That which passes into everything is one thing. It's a dream already ended. There's nothing to be afraid of and nothing to be glad about. I know this from staring at mountains months on end. They never show any expression, they are like empty space. Do you think the emptiness of space will ever crumble away? Mountains will crumble, but the emptiness of space, which is the one universal essence of mind, the vast awakenerhood, empty and awake, will never crumble away because it was never born" - Kerouac 
Amazing day to run in this beautiful fall weather.

Dear friends,

I wish you'd take a chance to truly see freedom. A freedom from workloads, from due dates, from the constant wishing for the weekend. I speak of a true, innate freedom. One that comes with minimal money, and minimal things. A freedom that comes with coffee made from river water, built on tired legs, and burnt skin. On empty stomachs, and sore lungs. 
It is in this state, the adventurers state, that true adventure happens. When the only option is the climb the mountain, to soak in the sun, and ingest true primal freedom. Only when you surrender to the land, and accept that you are nothing in the wake of everything will you find yourself at the foot of adventure, and with it freedom. 
I hope you make a true effort to try and make this drastic change in your life at least once. To be an unapologetic romantic. To let the earth break you down, to let your body feel completely lost, and to focus only on the essential things in life, to breathe, to inhale the sweet clean mountain air, and to put one foot in front of the other. Live. No day is guaranteed, and no second should be wasted. 
Yours truly,
Arthur Elias

Yes I've been nonstop reading On The Road, Factotum, and Into The Wild this trip. I apologize for absolutely none of it.

"It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude." 20 miles on the bike, and 10 miles on the trails today.

Colorado... Wow. I can't believe the month is over. It breaks my heart to leave this place. Constant peaks, and new trails. Staying in possibly my favorite town ever, Fort Ballins. Meeting new people, seeing old friends, drinking river cooled beers, and even seeing an Uncle Ronnies sign at a bar. I love it here. I love the freedom and vast wilderness this beautiful state has to offer. I love the people, their willingness to just except new people, and to always offer a beer after a hard day in the mountains. My heart tells me I'll be back soon. But for now it's back home to Washington. To see what wilderness I can find. Thank you so much, Colorado. I'll dream of avalanche chutes, technical decents, and the cool 13,000ft air.
