My newest tattoo, of my local foothills where I run and train everyday.

Enjoying the single track of the Pacific Crest Trail

After 70 rough miles this last Saturday, 5 easy miles this morning on the trails with my best friend was perfect.

Anonymous said: When you're running an ultra (say, 100 miler), which GPS watch do you use? Does the battery die at some point? How do you track the entire thing?

I currently use the 310XT and it lasts about 17 hours for me then I usually use a friends watch for the remaining.  

I just purchased the Garmin Fenix 2 which has up to a 50 hour battery life with GPS so i’m very excited about that

here is a preview of my tattoo, going to get the local foothills/mountain all in a grey scale with a nice quote underneath.

"If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived."
