Tampagne showers

There is no guidebook on how to celebrate a 29th birthday. For Holly, running 29 kilometers uphill through a redwood forest is what made the most sense.

And so, with the girls by her side, she ascended above the marine layer late on a Sunday morning and popped a champagne bottle at the summit of Mt. Tam.

Trail runners take the bridge

January 3, 2021. 8:00am. Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, California.

Despite heavy fog in the Bay, fireworks went off today when a few of San Francisco’s accomplished trail runners took to the pavement. It was the last day of the first round for Trials of Miles‘s Chase the Throne, and this crew seemed to thrive under pressure: YiOu promptly reclaimed her southbound Golden Gate Bridge Strava segment in commanding fashion, and lowered several other segment records along the way.

Chase the Throne, Round One

December 31, 2020. 8:20am. Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, California.

On the final morning of a forsaken year, a motley crew of fit men and women materialized at the Golden Gate Bridge and ran across it as fast as they could. At stake: The chance to advance closer to earning the title of king or queen of San Francisco in Trials of Miles‘s Chase the Throne virtual race tournament.

There was no shortage of impressive performances, but perhaps most notably, Lizzy broke the legendary 9-year-old southbound Golden Gate Bridge Strava segment record.

A happy new year, indeed.
