Kirkwood Skiing

More fun in the powder (8 inches new snow) under bluebird skies at Kirkwood last weekend. We skied some of the ski area’s legendary expert terrain and had a blast. Here are some photos and check out the complete web album here. Advertisements

Alpine Meadows Powder!!

Scott and I skied Alpine Meadows last Friday in epic conditions that exceeded even my dreams – 2+ feet of light, fluffy snow and bluebird California sunshine! We had several “fresh track” runs, hiked around for more fresh powder, and skied hard the whole day. The deep powder worked my legs big time but I…

Mount Williamson

Hamms Gulch Hack Job

First of all, congratulations to the Stanford Women’s Basketball Team who upset UConn to reach the title game in the NCAA tournament! Go Cardinal!!! I ran today at Windy Hill Open Space Preserve and the ascent up Razorback Ridge trail was great as usual. However, the descent down Hamms Gulch had an unpleasant surprise. Apparently…

Happy Chanukah!

Yesterday was the first night of Chanukah and to celebrate here is a hilarious video of NBA stars wishing their Jewish fans a happy festival of lights! Today was the last day of classes of the Fall semester! It’s unbelievable how fast it flew by. Now I have to study for one final, take it…

Cruise Control

Business as usual here at Stanford. Class, runs, etc. As far as running, I had a speedy run today at Los Altos Hills even though my legs felt a little tired. I have run many days in a row now so I plan on taking tomorrow off. Regarding school, I gave my presentation on Lease…

Short Update

Not much new to report today. My hair was starting to get a little wild so I got a haircut. The short cut feels much better in the hotter weather. I then went to Arrillaga gym and worked back muscles, followed by the second half of the Spurs-Cavs game three of the NBA finals. Both…

We Believe!!! Warriors Win

The Warriors have completed the improbable – perhaps the biggest upset in NBA playoff history! I knew the Warriors matched up well against the #1-seeded Mavs, but I didn’t realize they would play so well. I am so happy for the Warriors and the Bay Area. It’s been a long time for Golden State, but…

New Skis

Today I bought some new skis! It’s been over seven years and I thought it was time for an update. I was looking to purchase skis in May because now is when the price on last years models is reduced resulting in some amazing sales. Thus, even though I won’t be using these skis for…

Countdown

The big final is tomorrow morning at 8:30 am. It will all be over at 12:30 pm tomorrow. I plan on giving my brain a break for a few days 🙂 Yesterday I went to a track meet at Stanford and watched my friend from Rice compete in the 5k. I also saw Mircea Bogdan…
