I believe I can fly

Monday, August 23, 2010


This weekend I went to Ohiopyle State Park with some friends and paddled the Lower Youghiogheny river in Pennyslvania.


This weekend for the first time the Park has begun a trial period allowing people to run Ohiopyle falls more than one day a year.

We ran it on Sunday, the day after the race. The video is of my drop. Yes, those are platforms of spectators on the shore in the background.

Here is another angle. You can see my friend Aubrey on the rock in the background, shooting the video.

The whole series can be seen here:

After running the falls we continued on for another 4+ hours, running the river and playing along the way. I burned well over 1000 calories both Saturday and Sunday, according to my heart rate monitor.

It was a good weekend.
