In their own words...
Running achievement I am most proud of: I have been doing this for 37 years, and I remain healthy, happy, very curious, and increasingly am inspiring others to explore and enjoy their own boundaries.
Why I run: Running is a more full expression of being alive.

"Fun" rhymes with "run"; help put the word "run" back into "trail running", by supporting our La Sportiva/GoLite Mountain Running Team, by suggesting young people to learn to run before they learn to slog thru ultras, and by encouraging real trail racing.
Always use running as a mirror to inner growth, happiness, and wholeness.
Favorite quote: "Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana."
Additional comments/thoughts: I'm surprised I'm still doing all these things. I had no intention of still running at this stage of my life. Its questionable to me if this is a good thing or not. If I focus on my continued learning and growing, I conclude it remains a reasonable activity, although if I could figure out a way to end world hunger or bring about world peace, I would certainly expend my calories doing that instead of running. My real goal is to spend my days doing yoga and gardening, but those days somehow haven't arrived yet.
