    Default Trail running has replaced backpacking

    Trail running has dominated my (limited) free time. Long runs have replaced section hikes.
    Then someone suggested a quick overnight before the nights get too cold and I thought about whiteblaze.net. Thought I would pop-in and check out the latest gear arguments and trail issues. Fun stuff.

    Enjoy this video of a short trail run. It contains a random race with two kids, a horse, and a flyby of Windsor Furnace Shelter.

    It's interesting to play with terrain and the trail at speed. It's not my favorite but does give a different perspective on the trail and the lay of the trail. Have fun

    2100 may be a tad overkill but The Western States 100 is a viable option to take trail running to a new level.

    I got into 100s because I didn't have time for long distance hiking any more.
