2015 in review
2015 was a good year full of lots of racing. Though the adventure racing outlook was initially bleak thanks to the departure/hiatus of BonkHard, plenty of other organizers stepped up to fill my calendar. While the bike has always been my first love, my runn...

As recent events prove, one of my main motivations to get on my bike is a mid-ride meal. Stopping halfway through to sit down and eat makes it easier to mentally break the miles in half. Riding 42 miles to lunch and then back...

BT Epic
The BT Epic is a mountain bike race featuring 50 primarily singletrack miles centered around Missouri's Berryman Trail . It's one of "the" big races of the year around here, but I've never been able to do it. BonkHard Racing's Perfect 10 orienteering race, ...

Tomahawk Challenge 24 hour AR
Note: Written by me, commentary by Chuck in green. This year's Tomahawk Challenge was an inaugural event, but you'd never know it from how smoothly and well the race was run.  Extras like free camping at the start/finish area and free pre- and post-race mea...

Council Bluff
I've ridden on the Council Bluff Lake trail a couple of times, once for my second Berryman AR  and once last summer when Luke and Casey were staying nearby with their families, but I've never ridden all of the way around the lake. Like most trails I've ridd...

PMETR 2015
I wasn't going to register for the Pere Marquette Endurance Trail Run this year. True, it's long been one of my favorite races. And yes, it's held at one of my favorite parks.  And it is a virtual who's who of the STL area running scene. But that "running" ...

Frankenleg
My very first mountain biking experience featured a fall that resulted in surgery to repair a badly dislocated thumb. This was the beginning of both an lasting love affair with mountain biking and an enduring trend, one where all of my worst crashes are on ...

2015 Stubborn Mule 30-hour
Cable, WI, is a long drive from the St. Louis area, but it's totally worth the trip (especially if you aren't the one who does the driving!). This year the Stubborn Mule adventure race  moved northwest to the Cable area, and though I was looking forward to ...
