Gettin’ Techy With It: Best Free iPhone Apps for Runners

There are approximately 101 different apps out there for tracking your progress as you run (based on my extensive market research, which consisted of 20 seconds of near-aimless scrolling through the app store), and they all seem to do different iterations of the same thing — along you to modify your running route until it resembles a penis. All in ... Read More »

Greetings from Virginia! I’m officially in the south now. Bring on the sweet tea and Waffle Houses! So far I’ve been loving Virginia, so beautiful with lots of streams and ridgeline views.

Appalachian Trail Conservancy

Hi everyone! We are currently in Harpers Ferry.  HALF WAY! Hard to believe, right? Over 1,000 miles. If only my shoes could talk, they would have quite the story to tell. I finally retired them.  After all we have been through together, I can’t even stand the thought of chucking my old friends. Somehow, it wouldn’t seem right. They will ... Read More »

Greetings from New Hampshire! We have officially made it out of our first state.  It’s bittersweet, but we have so much ahead of us to look forward to! Maine sure sent us out with a bang.

100 Mile Wilderness Appalachian Trail Sign

Greetings, readers. Somehow, we’ve made it through the 100 Mile Wilderness. And then the next 70 miles, roughly, to make it into the town of Stratton, Maine, where we’re now resting up before hitting the tricky terrain that lies ahead. As Southbounders, we often hear that we’re hitting the most difficult parts of the trail right off the bat: Katahdin, ... Read More »

On the Appalachian Trail with Lauren and Grace (pt.2)

Greetings from Maine! We started our journey by arriving in the sleepy town of Millanocket, ME.  We booked a room at the Appalachian Trail Lodge to rest up the night before Mount Katahdin – the toughest ascent on the AT. Nervous and excited anticipation was building. We could barely sleep that night and awoke to the alarm 3 hours later at ... Read More »
