Journey, a new video by French trail runner and amateur filmmaker Guillaume Arthus, 23, explores the grandeur of the American West and celebrates the adventure of the trail-running life.
Arthus traveled to 26 National Parks in 47 days this summer, running approximately 500 trail miles in the process. Wanting to “share his passion for exploring the best running trails in the U.S.,” he says, he edited footage from his trip into a montage of stunning panoramas, joyful action shots and reflections on trail running.

To qualify for the National Senior Games in 2015, I needed find a 10K to run under the 49:45 standard. Florida was the place and the Ft. Myers River Run was the event. Two nice surprises for a road trip - you would think a course would be flat, but the Ft. Myers Track Club ran the race over the two bridges over the Caloosahatchee River, each about a mile in length and added the elevation changes (photo on left is from the finish line). And then learned that John Rinkenbaugh, who used to work for Kansas City and Topeka televison stations and a Lawrence Sandrat now manages the RunFlorida on McGregor store in Ft. Myers (above, John in red). I did qualify and will join Dee at Nationals next July. - Gene Wee
