Started: December 1, 2014
Challenge Ends: December 31, 2014
A Little About Me:

I live in Rossland, BC.  The trailhead for this run is right behind my house.  On a good summer day I can run up in 20 minutes.  It will take me longer in the winter.  It is steep, even by Rossland standards. 

My Challenge:

In the month of December I will run or showshoe up Asshole (a.k.a. Deer Park Mountain) 25 times. 

On the 25th time, I will yodel at the top.  Music not yet selected - requests welcome.

This Challenge Is Important To Me Because:

Rossland needs a skatepark.  We've got the design, we've got the site, we've got the support.  Now we just need the rest of the cash.  Time to make it happen.

24th run today! Up and down in under 40 minutes from my house. Going to own that hill New Year's eve. Anyone care to join me for a yodel? We may even run into another challenger doing his final December armchair hike!

Run 22 on the 26th. I'm going to make it without having to double up. Notice to anyone that might want to join me for a yodel and/or a drink on top on run 25 -- that will probably happen December 30th,

Hoarfrost o-on the trees (but no snow)

December 12th, tenth time to the top! 15 to go!


I am hoping that for most of the rest I'll be plowing through fresh snow. Tough running in these conditions. If you really pity me, get your friends to donate -- that will make you feel better.

7th run today. Raining all the way to the top. When I set this challenge I had visions of running through fluffy white powder. Ha ha ha.
