Re: The Barn

JT: Yes, big difference. A little in ability, but mostly I'm able to train hard and not have the elbow and wrist pain that shut me down several years ago before Crossfit.I hope by this time next year I will notice a big improvement in ability.
You seem to stay in great shape. Great job, especially with all the traveling you do. I know my son has struggled with fitness partly because of traveling. He is doing better, and seems to like the Crossfit program.
Neat picture of you surfing-never tried it-looks like alot of fun!

Re: The Barn

How far away is the post you run to.

Did you find the climbing scenes believable in the book?

Re: The Barn

Back from Colorado; another great trip with great friends! Climbed 6 days in a row, a variety of routes from 5.7 to 5.12a. Very little left elbow pain, only had to wear the elbow braces on a few routes.

JT:not sure about the post distance, one of these days I'll have to measure it. Somewhere between 1.5-2 miles.
I really enjoyed the book. The climbing scenes did seem real. I was lucky enough to watch Katie Brown warm-up for a comp. many years ago. Her climbing was effortless, reminding me of your descriptions of Mina's climbing. Kane's climbing was more human (more like the rest of us), making Mina's accomplishments even more amazing to the reader.

There were several things in the Cliffhanger movie that I said "come on, that doesn't really happen". I didn't read anything in your book that made me think that. I thought the climbing scenes seemed very real; nice work!

Hi Norm, there is a great website called "Map My Run" that works like google earth, but lets you map your run courses and get the distance and elevation. It takes a little bit to figure out how it works, but once you do, it's a nice tool for runners and bikers. Go to:
