More Than Just Marathon Running

Though we do love marathon running, you're as likely to find us at a local 5k or 10k race, or at elevation, testing our legs and lungs, in our favorite mountain running races, ultra-distance events, other running sports (and non-running sports), and other fun, multi-sport challenges.

And, as much fun as crossing finish lines may be, our training days are some of the most pleasurable (even the tough ones), as we get to share them with friends, teammates, and the rest of the running community!

Here I am, finishing up the 6.6 miles and 3,200' of elevation gain at the 2019 #LoonMountainRace. This one is consistently a favorite race, year after year, though I'm not certain my quads think so!
