"Ran/hiked 14 miles along the AT with 5,000+ feet of climbing. Strained my right calf going up The Priest. No proper warm-up. Went point-to-point from Tye River to Montebello Fishery. Foggy, humid, warm day. " - The Priest, runshigleyrun, May 28, 2018
"For the second time, I made it to the top of Spy Rock, but was fogged in. Great run along the AT, though. 14 miles, 5,000 feet of climbing and a fun scramble to the top of Spy Rock. Just before the rains came. " - Spy Rock, runshigleyrun, May 28, 2018
"Toward the end of a long day of running/hiking from the Tye River gap. Went up The Priest, visited Crabtree Falls, and saw Spy Rock. 14 miles of AT with 5,000 feet of climbing. " - Maintop Mountain, runshigleyrun, May 28, 2018
"One of the last sections of trail for my two days of running in the northern section of Shenandoah. There are two epic spots on this peak. Ancient, fascinating rock formations and a beautiful panorama of the Blue Ridge. " - Compton Peak, runshigleyrun, May 13, 2018
"Ran as part of my two-day trail adventure in northern Shenandoah Nat'l Park. Summited Dickey Hill twice as I ran the entire Dickey Ridge and the Snead Farm Loop. Only one view along Dickey Ridge, but incredible biodiversity in the form of wildflowers and bears. " - Dickey Hill, runshigleyrun, May 12, 2018
