A trailrunning buddy of mine, Jason Crosby, hails from Macon, Georgia and recently relocated to the Kansas City area. He posted this illustration recently on his blog, "Ink Doodles". It's based on his experiences running with our group on our crazy night runs.
Jason has been the graphic artist for the Tour de Georgia, and several other projects. He's a natural runner, and loves trailrunning, and is training for his first 50K. He seems to despise pavement running.
He's a wonderful addition to our motley crew of trailrunners.
PS: He freelances, and comes up with great graphic designs for all occasions. Any race directors or others interested? Drop him a line: firstname.lastname@example.org
I find ways to enjoy life as much as I can. Also, life's too short to treat people poorly.
I'm into long runs in the park, consuming salt, popping blisters,
eating roadkill & tree bark, and burying whiners in shallow, unmarked
graves. I also enjoy designing trail race courses that would make the
Marquis de Sade blush.
A fun time for me would include banging muddy shoes together, setting
broken bones with a machinist's vise, and duct-taping-down any part of my
body that is bleeding or just flopping-about uselessly.
What helps me to be an active trailrunner and grandpa?
1) Daily sponge baths with bovine stem cells;
2) Copious amounts of delicious & nutritious homebrewed beer; and
3) My secret elixir...Bicarbonate of Figleaf.
