Completed the 9th annual MR340 this week. Left from Kaw Point in Kansas City, MO on Tuesday morning and arrived in St. Charles, MO on Thursday afternoon - 53 hours and 55 minutes later. It was enough to place 9th out of 166 solo racers. Slept only about an hour in Herman, MO during the entire event. It was a hard race, but also a lot of fun.

Completed the 2014 MFer ("mostly flat") ride on Saturday along with Dennis Regelsperger, Beth Sanborn and Mike Bangert. Only did the 200-mile route from Columbia, IL to Grand Tower and back. No takers for really big miles this year,

Spent New Year's with Vanessa McKenzie playing in White Mountain National Park up in New Hampshire. Lucked out and had a clear day when we summited Mt. Washington. Temps on the summit were roughly 20 below with winds at around 80 mph. Brrr.

Ran the Pere Marquette trail run on Saturday. Very snowy and icy day. Due to the weather it took much longer to drive over there than anticipated - and I missed my start time. I ended up having to run in the last heat which made it a bit more difficult because I had to navigate through quite a bit of traffic during the race. Finished in 1:13. Fun day regardless.

Spent a few days down in Arkansas hiking the Buffalo River Trail. The first part of the trail was very overgrown - we were trudging through tick-laden grass up to our waist. Not a lot of fun. After a few miles things opened up and hiking was more enjoyable.
Decent trail, but I think next time I'll go back to paddling it.
