Why They Run

June 21, 2017

In the last issue I wrote about why I run, and the solitude and clarity that movement through nature brings. Running for me has never been about community, or seeking a sense of belonging.

In this issue, I continue to explore the question of, “Why?” So, I asked a handful of  elite runners in the …more »




Why I Run

April 4, 2017

Beginning this exercise of reflection, I …more »

Running Scared

October 4, 2016

  Fear keeps us planted. Fear keeps us is constant motion. It is both quicksand and the burning coals beneath our feet. We fear the possibility of failure, incertitude of change, and discomfort of pain. While a healthy dose of it is good, especially when in the presence of real danger, it is quite possible we’ve been oversaturated with fear. This has dulled our ability to distinguish between that which is necessary and that which …more »

Youth Running: Is It Really Bad for Your Kids to Run?

May 19, 2016

I’ve been involved with coaching youth runners now for the better part of a decade. As a kid I participated in several youth running programs, from USATF Junior Olympics to Steens Mountain Running. One of the frequent questions you’ll hear when coaching youth athletes in the sport of running is, “Isn’t it bad for them to be running so young?” The easiest answer would be, no. But I never take the easy way, so let’s …more »
