Just got back from an amazing and adventurous weekend in Moab, Utah. The highlight of the trip was mountain biking Saturday on a ride called “The Whole Enchilada.” It took us about six hours (three flats) and is on the top 5 of hardest things I have ever done! Details of the various trails can be found at: http://www.discovermoab.com/biking.htm

If you are looking for a personal trainer who has worked extensively on the rehab side of training but also trains rugby players, pro basketball players, college football, soccer, tennis, volleyball, you name it. Then I am your man. Best place to contact me is aaronderugby@gmail.com

it was bitter sweet to see John when he got back from Everest. I met with him at Morgan Street Cafe. He had been on Everest just some 50 hours prior. He had lost 30 pounds and had taken a bit of a beating from the mountain but he always has such a great attitude. Below is a link to his blog detailing the events that led him to descend from Camp IV after 24 hours in the “death zone.”

The 2nd link is a short clip of the storm they descended through to make it back to base camp.

You can still donate to his cause to further orthopeadic research by going to http://www.goldenexpedition.org/

Discovery Channel will be airing 6 one hour episodes of John and Jon’s summit attempt in November of this year.
