Had a great hike in Shenandoah National Park this weekend, a form of cross-training I guess you can call it. A beautiful panoramic view of fall foiliage at the top made it all worthwhile. It was steep in some places which made me admire all those mountain runners who actually run and race up those things.
I came back home to read that hockey great Mark Messier has been training to run in next weekend's New York City Marathon for charity. You can read about it here, and about other running celebrities here.
