Chris Cunningham and I reluctantly went outside on his mom's command to "enjoy the fresh air" that day.  We were twelve.  Lacking any other appealing options, we decided to head out to his driveway and play catch with a football.  A real football, too...not one of those fluorescent, sticky Nerf ones that were only awesome until chunks came out of it.  For no real reason, I intentionally overthrew Chris once.  Not by a foot or two, but by maybe ten or twenty.  Enough to land it straight into…See More

Sean O'Day commented on Mary Baldwin's blog post Jello-legs, made up songs, and the smell of burning brakes.
"Good work on the summit.  Not an easy way up!I'm missing the "PPA/PPM" crew.  Some of my favorite times are finishing up and getting to suck in the thin O's with a group of ten or twenty likeminded (read, crazy) people."

Brianne Pierson commented on Sean O'Day's blog post Jagged
"I've been denied the super-easy Spanish Peaks twice due to lightning. It takes a wise and humble person to turn around (or just innate self-preservation). Jagged Peak looks gnarly. I saw that someone died on Longs Peak recently. The great…"

Jagged

Victory is so much easier to write about than defeat.  But it's from defeat where we learn to appreciate victory.  I can only hope my last outing to the Weminuche Wilderness teaches me something.  It has nothing to do with Pikes and little to do with Ascent training, but it is a window into what this whole pseudomountaineering thing is all about.…See More

"6 1/2 minute miles??? You're in a different time zone from me brother. The only Jack Daniels i'm familiar with is for post-training remedies. This was a great post, thanks for sharing. I'm guessing, in all seriousness (yes, I know,…"

Pikes training is a blast.  Seriously, it's so much more complex and intricate than your standard 16-week canned marathon plan.  There are so many things one can do to prepare, and so many ways to leave oneself wondering if enough has been done!  It doesn't matter if you're an elite, grizzled middle-of-the-pack vet, or newbie just hoping to hit the cutoffs...there's always something more to be done.Of all…See More

Sean O'Day commented on Bill Beagle's blog post Getting Serviced
"Yeah, I know that service road.  Kind of a necessary evil if you're going to enjoy the loop atop Spruce Mountain, huh?  Looks pretty darn muddy."

Sean O'Day commented on Gene Chavez's blog post Bottom to Top???
"Oh, treeline.  The good news about feeling so terrible this time is you'll likely not feel quite as bad next time."

Sean O'Day commented on Brianne Pierson's blog post Above the Clouds on Barr Trail
"Don't get eaten by bears up in Yellowstone and enjoy the WWR.  Enjoy the amazing "holy cow I'm sore" feeling you'll have once you're done!"

Sean O'Day commented on Shelley Hitz's blog post I made it to Barr Camp...FINALLY!!
"In 2005, Ryan Hafer won the Ascent without setting foot on Pikes in the preceding months.  However, knowing what you're up against sure can calm oneself down, can't it?   Make sure you smile when you pass through BC on the 16th.…"

"I disagree - that photo does all the explaining for your week of you would ever need to do.  :) Not to worry.  You'll still get up that pile of rocks.  "

Although I know there's value in it, there is a part of me that feels kind of silly writing a race report for the Summer Roundup.  Why?  I purposely treated it like any other day - I didn't go to bed early the night before, did no special hydration, didn't dwell on my splits or feel the need to memorize the course in the preceding week.  I didn't taper for it, didn't wear racing flats, didn't do the standard pre-race warmup routine.  I just showed up, ran, and had a great time with my Purple…See More
