    Mt. Wilson Summitted Again - Barefoot

    Andy Kumeda of purEndurance.com and I once again spent 7 hours on the trails of the Angeles Crest. This time, I was barefoot the whole time. After getting to the summit of Mt. Wilson, I put on some half-socks and wrapped my ankles to handle the long, steep downhills.

    One of the highlights of the trip was running into Hal Winton, 72, Angeles Crest 100 Race Director. It was an honor. Hal, keep up the great work, and thank you for inspiring so many of us!


    Wilson ahead

    From Hasting's Peak



    Mt. Wilson Toll Road



    Half Socks: excellent for descents



    Minor adjustments



    Down, down, down...



    Over the hills and through the trees...



    Just above Sierra Madre, you can see the hospital where I was born
    I have been looking up at these mountains all my life




    7 hours later...
    Count'em, all 10 remain!
