    I couldn't help it. I was on my roof, blowing the needles off. And I got distracted by the shiny object below.

    I occasionally make it down that way. For me, work varies as construction happens to not stay in the same spot forever.

    Thought I'd post some of the pics I took on my phone from a great family trip to Winthrop. I have more on my dSLR, but I'm always really slow to get these uploaded.

    Slate Peak at the top of Hart's pass. So high up that it dropped over 30 degrees. Shorts in the valley, snowing at the top! We couldn't go up the lookout tower because of the ice. If you didn't watch out, icicles would dro and gore your head!

    You're doing it?!?! I'll for sure do it next year. Did Rugged Maniac and Warrior Dash this year, a little too easy for me. There's one call Race the Reaper that's held here in Oregon that looks pretty fun that I want to do next year. I'm looking for more of a physical challenge that doesn't involve jumping over a little fire :cool:

    EDIT
    Have fun dude!

    Hahaha, yeah, the fire at the end is kinda lame. You'd have to fall down on the flames to actually hurt yourself:)

    I did the tough Mudder for the second year in a row. Seattle doesn't seem to have fire obstacles in TM. Lots of running. I think I heard that this years course was a little over 11 miles.

    The course this year had a lot of open tracks that didn't give clear direction as to which way to go in several places. On top of that, it had people running in 2 directions for different parts of the course in these poorly marked areas. Parking was easier this year though. Last year it took 20 min to make it from the street to parking. This year, less than 5.

    The arctic enema didn't seem as cold, and there seemed to be a lot less ice. The weather was sunny. TM had clif shot blocks out about half way through the course, which I quickly ate 9 of. I think a lot of people come into this not having enough electrolytes in their system, and even with them, they are sweated out.

    Overall though, I had a good time, but it took me longer to complete than last year.

    Yeah, it seems like organization is key! That Oregon Warrior Dash was a joke...the traffic was a nightmare, the whole thing was just a mess. I've gotta run Tough Mudder one of these days. Either that or just give up and start smoking again:)
