Day 35 of 50 ⛰ — Less than 2 weeks to race day. How did that happen!? When I think back to last year’s CCC, I let a lot of outside stresses and doubts creep in. It was a whole new level of competition for me and mentally I don’t think I was prepared. This year the internal pressure is lower (...as much as it can be 😬😅). Being in Chamonix with other runners to train with has reminded me that racing is such a small part of the sport, and sharing trails with those chasing the same dream is what it’s all about. So thanks to everyone who’s shared some strides in the mountains recently 👍

Day 34 of 50 ⛰ — The stillness, reflections and portal-esque views keep bringing me up to Lac Noir. Sharing time with @kierendsouza across some fun rocky trails and steep climbs before descending back into Chamonix with bellies full of wild berries was a morning well spent. 24km, +/-1,700m and the sweetest berries I’ve ever tasted 🤤 Anyone else like a bit of mid-run grazing on the trails!?
Over the span of about an hour, 🛰 #Cassini 's camera recorded the shadow of the small moon Epimetheus (just 120 km wide) at a distance of 945,000 kilometers (587,000 miles) from Saturn, orbiting beyond the rings, as it moved across the Gas Giant's A ring!
🎥 The movie images were taken in visible light with @NASA’ s Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera. This view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 53 degrees below the ring plane. Image scale is 5 kilometers (3 miles) per pixel.
Seceda in the Italian Dolomites was a dream come true, the moment I saw a photo of it I wanted to go. So do many people and there is a cable car ride right to the view. To avoid the crowds I began at 5am to run to the peak from St Ulrich Ortisei, and was rewarded with nature's spotlight shining down
