Not even on the plane and…

"Question Everything"- Albert Einstein And so we will. Welcome to the first Blog post where no question goes unanswered and we amuse ourselves(and hopefully our 3 loyal readers) by often phrasing answers in the form of a question a la the number one game show in the...

What do you think about…

I have often been asked what I think about on runs - especially the ones in challenging landscapes. So, consider this post a listener request. Below is the abridged version for some of my thoughts and useful visual aides to capture the moment. Race start at 7:18:02...
