The Ultra Experience

Here's to the adventures of my life which are usually ultra marathon trail running or fly fishing but may include other trips, experiences, thoughts, opinions, or pretty much whatever I want. As co-founder of Altra Footwear my life and adventures seemingly revolve more around developing and promoting the best footwear in the world...and I love it!

Safely home.

Just got back from a two week hiatus from the Middle East yesterday. Had a fantastic time which I will write about at a later date.

I also starting training yesterday! My monthly total for April was....65 miles. How pathetic is that? Injury and then being out of town played huge roles of course. After the vacation/time off running, I feel invigorated both physically and mentally. I've had two great runs since getting home and the jet lag is under control so far. Lets see how many miles I can crank out without re-injuring myself before Squaw Peak.

Here's a few highlights from the Trip:
Floating the Dead Sea
Caesarea Phillippi
Gethsemane
Hiking Masada

What a great trip. I miss the time I spent there, and still have vivid dreams of being there again. Were the trout rising in the pools of Ceasarea Philippi? See you at Squaw Peak!

Looks like you had a good time. That is a place that I have always wanted to go. Regretfully, I once turned down an all expenses paid trip to the middle east!! :( I was young and really dumb!
