Mountain Area Land Trust Presentation

For over 20 years, the Mountain Area Land Trust (MALT) has worked hard to keep wild places, well, wild.  My dad and I were honored to present at MALT's Airmchair Adventure Series last night.

Podium Finish at North American Snowshoeing Championship and "New Member" of the Macy Family

The snowshoeing season wrapped up yesterday with the always-competive North American Snowshoe Racing Championship, the final event of the Beaver Creek Snowshoe Adventure Series.

In the women's race, Sara Tarkington continued her dominance, but she had to work for the win due to strong charges from Lindsay Krause, who finished second.

My cousin, Ethan Pence, ran strong in the 5k for a third place finish among seasoned veterans.

Josiah Middaugh ran through bronchitis for the 10k win, and Peter Maksimow sprung off a 53-minute 10-mile road race last weekend for a great run to second.  I felt a bit sluggish and run-down, and I was happy to hang on for the final podium spot. 

In other news, Wyatt is happy to announce the addition of a new...

...camper to our family!

We're stoked for some road trips to mtb, multisport, and XTERRA races this summer.  Wyatt enjoyed a nice "stroll" up Mt. Falcon after this photo was taken.  As it turns out, the backpack would have been a much better option for that trail, which was still quite snowy in areas!

I was lucky to catch up with Ribz Wear, a compelling new company, at the Outdoor Retailer Show this winter in Salt Lake City.  Specializing in a one-of-a-kind front pack system, Ribz offers a great solution for accessibility to important items when adventure racing, cycling, paddling, fishing, photographing, or hiking.

I plan to use Ribz heavily for long-distance flatwater paddling in adventure races, when quick access to food is a must.
