I grew up in Orem, Utah. A place where I had easy access to the mountains. If you knew me during my younger years, you knew that I loved camping, hiking, fishing and skiing in the mountains close to Orem. There was nothing better than getting away to the mountains to enjoy these activities.
When I learned about ultramarathon running and that these running events were run in the mountains, I thought: “I want to do that.” The novelty of it all appealed to me and thus running became a new medium to enjoy the mountains.
There is something about being in the mountains that makes running better. And there is something about running that makes being in the mountains better. The two together have a symbiotic relationship that has me always wanting to be in the mountains running.
….Man I love running, but just not running….running in the mountains on a single track trail is what I love!!
This blog is about my love of ultramarathon running and the things that I have learned along the way. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful. Thanks for visiting!!!
