KOM is how they designate it. You can even set... Read more »
  • Dressing for Below Zero Running
    Went out early this morning, 7:00 AM, for a cold winter run. I stayed on the roads this time simply because with all the new snow and frozen snow and ice, it was essentially fairly flat trail running in up to 6" of crusted snow, even on the roads here in Keystone CO.I layered up after getting the current conditions and forecast from Accuweather on my phone app. -3 F with -12 F real feel....

  • Trail Running on Groomed Snow
    Back from the wet Seattle forest, I'm now doing mixed training. A few days outside and a few inside.
