Updates – Long Overdue

It has been a while since I have updated the site.  Busy at work, having new baby, taking the winter off from running and my Garmin breaking on me has hampered my progress on this site.  I apologize to those who have sent me races to add and comments on the site.  I appreciate the input from everyone and I will get back to regular posts and trail maps soon.

In the meantime, I have updated the What to Wear page so that it is working correctly again.  Please let me know if you find any issues with it.  I have tuned this to my preferences, so if you run hotter or cooler than me, please adjust the temperature accordingly.

You can find the new and updated What to Wear page here.
