What a blast to be a participant and not the organizer! Hats off to Steve Harvey and his team at the Old Goat Trail Race for a spectacular and tough route, great support, and a wonderful day out there! It was really fantastic to run into lots of Badwater people out there and I was touched by their support for me there as a runner. Running with the first ever Armenian Badwater athlete was an extra special treat: Thank you @telmaarmenianultrarnr for your positivity: that climb back up the canyon was brutal (for me; I know it was a stroll in the park for you.) #trailrunning #runningracedirector #oldgoatraces
A selection of photos celebrating some of the sweet moments and people from last weekend’s Badwater Cape Fear, the fifth annual race, and the best one yet. I’m just truly in awe of the friendships I have and the support and love that the runners and volunteers bring to the races I organize. Life is good! See many more pix over on my @BadwaterHQ account!
It was the film “Safe Haven” by Nicholas Sparks which originally turned me onto this area and lead me out here to create Badwater Cape Fear. That was five years ago and I flew out here just weeks after seeing the film, and then after two more trips out here that year to work out the logistics and permits and everything, the first race took place one year later, now four years ago. The fifth annual race takes place this Saturday. Follow all the action at @badwaterhq ! If you see or have seen the film, this is the location where the Juliann Hough character worked as a waitress. It’s down on the waterfront in Southport. The real name is American Fish Company, but they display the sign from the film on the side of the building. I stopped here this morning during a 5 km run Loop around Southport with @bobruns150 @nataliegorunfly and @susie_chan_
It’s great that Costco is going all-in with organic, but do chips really need to have 29 different ingredients? #costco #organic #keepitsimplestupid Also, talk about an insane example of “some settling of contents may occur.”
I’m in love with the new Handlebar Coffee location!!!! It’s so new, Instagram doesn’t even know it’s here. The first, smaller location is tagged incorrectly. This one is at 2720 De la Vina St Santa Barbara, CA 93105. #handlebarcoffee #bestcoffee #bestchai #santabarbaralife
It’s not the end, not at all. It’s actually just the beginning!
Any Bike, Anywhere! Westlake - Agoura Hills - Calabasas - The Valley - Woodland Hills (the fun way): Those of you who have bicycled along the 101 corridor between Agoura Hills / Las Virgenes and Calabasas / The Valley will know that we always have to cross over to the north side of the 101 for that one stretch on Mureau. That has always irked me, so about two years ago I figured out how to stay on the south side of the 101 by riding the Anza Loop Trail instead. Until today, I had only done that while going westbound and in the dry season; today I went east and it was wet for a stretch. However, I did spy a singletrack that looks like it bypasses the wet stretch which I will check out in a day or two. I love this stuff! @rawlandcycles #roughriding #anybikeanywhere
Swipe left for some “Any Bike, Anywhere” action! I am so stoked to discover some new dirt roads that connect epic canyon climbs! Wrong turns so often turn out to be just right! Today’s adventures included ascents of Santa Susana Pass, Lilac, and Mesa Drive, then a descent of Box Canyon. This is in the northwest corner of the San Fernando Valley, AKA “The Valley.” I rode my @rawlandcycles Nordavinden “road bike” with 700c by 27mm tyres. #roughriding #anybikeanywhere #rawlandcycles #dirtroads #underbiking #DoingARealSportOnSuperBowlSunday
