BI Tendencies in Flagstaff

Summit View Mt. Elden Flagstaff Trail Running

The whole day was shot. My GoPro camera, which was attached to a mini tripod and wrapped in a Millet windbreaker, fell out of my hydration pack somewhere along the five miles of trail I just ran. “Shit!” I murmured to myself. I knew my planned run was kaput. I turned around and retraced my tracks, scanning the trail for a red ... Read More »
