I finished 2010 with 3,061 miles under my belt - an anemic amount in comparison to many, but a decent amount considering the number of weeks missed from a few niggling injuries.  This is normally a time of year for reflection, but my mind is firmly focused on the future and the site of this picture above; Springer Mountain, GA and more specifically, the AT.  2011 will be an unprecedented year of challenges and adventure for myself and Kadra.  I just can't believe it is nearly here.  I welcome it with open arms!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Winter Fun

 Had a good run yesterday with my buddy Joel.  2k of climbing through waist-deep drifts in below zero wind chill.  The serene view from the top was definitely worth it all. . . but I still can't feel my thumbs.

Big Plans in 2011

Since now is the time of year that most people are starting to think more about the upcoming year than the present month remaining; I thought I too would share my 2011 plans.  I only have one simple agenda for 2011 - the Appalachian Trail.
