SUNRISE RUN LEAD
Favorite home trail
any of the singletrack behind Holiday Valley in Ellicottville. There's 30 miles of dedicated trails back there -- you can make a different loop every time and never get bored. Less than an hour from Buffalo, and it will always be worth the drive.
Why I Run
Throughout my adulthood, there have been so many changes and variables, but the one thing that has always stayed constant has been running. Running enforces self-discipline, mental and physical toughness, and self-discovery through pushing new boundaries and really seeing what you're made of. Running rewards you with a sense of accomplishment, gratitude for the trails, new friends, and the ability to be a part of a really strong and supportive community
My city's best kept secret
The best vegetarian breakfast in the world is at Amy's Place -- lentils, broccoli, homefries, toast, and BBQ seitan for like $6.00 if you get there before 9:00 AM. Kayaking on the Buffalo River between the massive grain elevators is one of the coolest experiences that most visitors miss out on.
Best place for pizza or burritos
Bocce Club on Bailey Avenue, just north of UB's South Campus, has consistently incredible pizza. And there's no better place for a burrito than Lloyd Taco Factory.
