Total success under the stars: In the Highcountry

Last night, you as a community:

Filled a garbage can full of food (kudos to whoever brought the red beans and rice) for Neighborhood Impact

Raised money for Central Oregon Running Klub (CORK) Youth Development: 100% of the ticket sales went straight to a great cause

Watched the YogaSlackers put on amazing show of athletic skill and balance, and come up out of your seats and joined in the fun (note: the 4 people you see on the ground in this photo are trained skilled professionals, the 4 people laying, hanging, and sitting on the trained professionals’ feet are not, and were pulling off these tricks within 5 min!)

Watch as Joel Wolpert’s camera depicts the soul of Anton Krupicka trekking, running, and climbing all over our world. If you weren’t able to join us last night, you can check out the In the Highcountry here.

Lastly – I’d like to thank our gracious sponsors for making this evening possible:  Deschutes Brewery, FootZone, Fleetfeet, and the REP Biomechanics Lab @ Rebound Physical Therapy.

Trail Running Tips and UROC

What’s different about trail running vs road running?

Is there anything you can do do better prepare your body for these differences?

Most all of the elite trail and ultra field is descending into the Blue Ridge Mountains this weekend for the Ultra Race of Champions. Should be one incredible race  – everything from smooth roads to the uber-technical flow of Torry Ridge will be laid out before them.

The team at UROC is trying to improve the visibility of Ultra-marathons, so they are going to broadcast content during the race on their site. Also they asked if I had any helpful tips or tricks for those who favor the rocky stuff and go longer than 26.2. If you’d like to know the answer to the above questions, check this video I made for Competitor and UROC. (you have to click on the link, not the picture) Enjoy!

Best of luck to all the racers!
