Favorite Part About Being a Runner
Running can be ‘active’ meditation for me, especially when running on a single track trail, cold and muddier the better
Sun Mountain and White River are two really great courses for beauty of the course and diversity of terrain type. Volcanic 50K is close second. Hard to beat Boston for road marathon, energy and a big ‘tent’ experience.
Running Words of Wisdom
Running fast is about fitness. Running far is about state of mind.
If you run today, you are guaranteed to be faster than everyone who didn’t.
