I've been a running geek for a long time now—about 20 years. When I'm not running, I'm often writing about it for a variety of magazines (see writing samples here). I've run 8 marathons--including Boston in 2014, the year after the bombings when Meb won. I've never felt so much positive energy in one place in my life.
As for this site, I hope it helps you find some good trails and other running resources in the beautiful Columbia Gorge, which inspires me every day.
