Contest Fever

I’ve entered 4 contests so far this month.  Probably 3 more than the rest of my life combined.  I’ve written Haiku for a pair of shoes, left a comment for another pair of shoes, sent some photos to Gear Junkie for a Weekday Warrior series, and now this.

The latest one is a photo contest for Trail Runner Magazine:


Hit Us with Your Best Shots!

In an upcoming spring issue, we will be featuring a gallery of our readers’ most inspiring trail images. So submit your sharp, well-composed trail-running photos (no paved surfaces, please!) that make you want to lace up and head out the door.

To enter, simply email 72 dpi jpegs (no more than six at a time, please, and edit down to the best of the best, i.e. no similars from  the same shoot) to Deadline: January 26.


I’ve already had my picture in Trail Runner, so it stands to reason I’ll get a picture in Trail Runner.

I guess after winning some $170 La Sportiva climbing shoes last year with a picture of me rock climbing in 1988(!!), I’m feeling lucky.  Can’t win if you don’t try…

Here’s my faux toes:

  1. Awesome! #3, a “road” section from Bighorn?

    • I should have labeled them.

      The mag shot is from 2010 Leadville 100
      #1 Roxborough State Park
      #2 Goblin Valley
      #3 Bighorn 100
      #4 Collegiate Peaks Wilderness Area
      #5 Moab Trail Marathon
      #6 Green Mountain, Lakewood, CO

      The Bighorn shot is outbound at the top of the largest climb in the first 10 miles or so. Above the section that runs along the fenceline:

      You would have been flying down this part to the bottom of the canyon… You’ll get a good look at it this year!
