“Here at the Mt. Washington Auto Road, which goes to the top of Mt. Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast at 6,288 feet, on Saturday of MDW we have Alton Weagle Day. It is an event remembering Alton Weagle, a man who loved Mt. Washington and climbed it in several unique ways, including pushing a wheelbarrow with 100 lbs of sugar up to the top. Leading up to Alton Weagle Day, people are encouraged to contact our General Manager with their idea for a unique attempt up the Auto Road. In past years, I have rollerskiied (classic) and nordic walked up the Road for Alton Weagle Day. Olympic Biathlete Sean Doherty rollerskied skate several years ago. This year I went ‘bear-back’.” (Photo: Meg Skidmore)

Jennifer: “I rode like an animal on my mountain bike today.”
Nice run up Mt. Megunticook. This Midwesterner enjoyed the challenge. Not often you get to start a run at sea level.

“My brother and I are in the midst of bikepacking and camping across Switzerland, then soon into Italy, Slovenia, and Croatia. Eating delicious food, making some new friends with the mountain cos and their bells, and getting a good workout in up and down across the Alps.”
Monday on the Sanctuary River in Denali National Park, Alaska.
“Memorial Day weekend, I went to Lake Placid. Saturday, I ran the Patch Sprint, 12.7-mile point-to-point trail race. It goes over four mountains, each one harder than the previous one, finishing on Pok-o-moonshine, with 1000 feet of vertical in 1.2 miles. Sunday and Monday my buddy and I rollerskied Bear Cub Ln in LP. A great weekend, even though it was hot and humid.”

Ran Memorial Day Mile with friends and her almost 1-year-old in Glens Falls, N.Y. Got beat by at least one dude with a stroller.
It’s not Memorial Day in Switzerland, so Chelsea was in the lab at the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag) working on her PhD.
