    WHY I RUN

    I love to run and hike and explore mountains and wilderness because it feeds a deep and undeniable need for wildness and an escape from the manmade world. It's therapeutic, and spiritual, and immensely satisfying; and it's all those things because it provides a true mindfulness that's extremely hard to attain amongst the radio static of our usual modern lives.

    Where I live:

    I live in Portland, Oregon because it's the best balance of urban living with very easily accessible trails, mountains and wilderness nearby.  Although the craziness of all the ails of urban living and can be draining (and therefore necessarily remedied with time outdoors) I do love cities and the cultural perks that come with them, being born and raised in Chicago after all.


    Home Trail(s): 

    Gorge--Rock of Ages loop

    PNW--Loowit Trail, Mt. St. Helens 

    US--Hermit Trail, Grand Canyon Nat'l Park

    Internat'l--Hardergrat, Switzerland
