This is my last Trail Racing Recap for RunningTimes.com. It has been fun writing this column for nearly a year now, but it has become increasingly difficult to keep up with work, life, and especially all my preparations in leaving for the AT in only 5-weeks.
Justin Mock will be taking over and I'm excited for this as he is an accomplished writer. He will do an excellent job . . . so keep reading!
Interesting article written on the RW blog yesterday about the Barkley Marathons. The article is written by inprisoned ultrarunner Charlie Engle. Check out the NY Times article on Engle (previous link). Very peculiar story and it turns out he is being held, interestingly, near Beckley, WV.
I wonder what is happening/happened at Barkley?

The WV Mountain Trail Runners and TMI are hosting a new high school running camp at The Mountain Institute (same location as the Trilogy). It will be held July 3-9 and features Eric Grossman, Joel and Katie Wolpert, and Dan Lehmann as staff-members. If you have children that are rising freshmen to graduating seniors, consider this opportunity to provide them with what is sure to be an unforgettable week in the mountains. Go to the website for more information.
