"Gearing Up" for AHU Training

This coming weekend I'll be at Afton State Park with Mitch Rossman doing a training run for the Arrowhead Ultra. Mitch set me up with some winter gear, including the one-man tent shown in the picture and a toasty sleeping bag. My task this past weekend was to sleep outside in the tent for a night in the cold - mission accomplished! I also hit REI and The North Face store to pick up some winter gear that I've neglected to pick up for the past year. Now I'll be much more comfortable and prepared for winter ultra training. I'm really stoked for this weekend and it will be interesting to see how I fare.

Looks awesome Steve!

Thanks for the positive comments on my blog recently. I'm really excited about the UTMB.

Off to check out what the Arrowhead Ultra is now!

Hope you stay warm in the tent.
