Just got power back – short, boring email Just so you know, I try to write this weekly letter the night before I send it. Last night (or right now, as I scribe) some of us in out-country were without power until roughly 9:00. I used the time in the dark to my advantage, in ...

It’s official, and as Tom said, it’s been a while. It has been quite some time since we held a BRC Induction Night, so get out your dress whites. We’re throwing a bash.

How About That I thought for sure when I got to the missive finale that I’d have more to say. Perhaps some sort of retrospective or maybe one last opportunity to tell you there is no bad weather, only bad equipment. But the weather conspired against me on that one. I could just tell you ...

Some Ups and Downs If you’re running with us this weekend might be because you are not running up Mt Washington. For those of you who haven’t run it (yet), two words – bucket list. For those of you who have scaled the heights of the White Mountains, this weekend’s run will feel like a ...
