Sunny Stroeer's impressive resume includes FKTs on the 22,838ft Aconcagua and its circumnavigation, the Annapurna Circuit, and the Pfiffner Traverse. She left a high-paying job as a management consultant -- but kept her hard-charging attitude -- to spend her days bagging many of the world's tallest summits, climbing big walls, and setting records running in the mountains. "I went by myself solo and unsupported and I got a lot of very strange reactions: 'But, where is your guide? Who are you with? Where is your husband?' ... And that just didn't sit right with me." She talks about closing the gender gap in unsupported outdoor pursuits, her preference for slow/strategic risk, upgrading from her Astrovan home, and her huge list of projects on the near horizon. Listen-in, and then learn more (and hire Sunny as a mountain guide) at http://www.sunnystroeer.com.

For 42 years, the Escarpment Run has been both a staple and a bit of an outlier in the trail-running scene in the Northeast. An 18-mile race over a very challenging course on a variety of surfaces, it requires speed, strength, the ability to run over technical terrain and skills for steep climbing and descending.

6.7 miles in a hair over 1 hour on surprisingly icy roads this morning. Overall felt decent but went slow to stay upright. Wasn't expecting so much ice as it was warm enough yesterday, I figured, to clear away the muck. Still a bit of a winter wonderland in Parker, though. Been battling a nasty indigestion thing the last 24 hours and it plagued me on my run this AM. No fun and no clue where this came from. A mysterious bug? Will plan to get after it with some fast quarters tomorrow.

If I can stress one virtue every trail runner should possess in their arsenal of weapons, it’s the punch of patience. Something I’ve often struggled with over the years. Too often I get caught up in the moment, forget what it’s all about, ignore the signs and then it all comes crashing down.

However, experts are largely agreed that a solid ultra-race day plan should include enough carbohydrates, possibly some protein and fat, electrolytes and enough liquids to replace lost sweat. […]

So long, 2018! On the running front, one of my more memorable experiences happened in July, when I was in New York City for business and spent days running to and around different parts of the city (in absolutely sweltering humidity). This is a photo of the 9/11 Memorial. I can't remember which tower this is, but the experience was powerful and deeply emotional, as you can imagine:
