New climbing/trail running blog.

Hi,

I just started a blog about climbing and trail running. Some of the stories have been posted here, some have not. Please take a look and let me know what you think.

Good theme. I like the run of the week feature with the topo and turn-by-turn instructions. The only thing I would add is a summary of trailhead amenities (e.g. water, bathrooms) at the beginning of each run page.

Thanks for the feedback. I added a section for each Run of the Week that summarizes the run length, elevation gain, trail head amenities, and any parking passes that are required. I also just posted a review of a pair of shoes that are a strong runner up to the old Montrail Hardrocks.

Thanks for the heads-up on the Salomon trail runners entry. I've been running/hiking in Vasque Blurs & Patagonia Releases lately, although the inside heel on my last pair of Releases got trashed fairly quickly. The Blurs fit quite similarly to the old Hardrocks.
