We humans love to put labels on things. Just need to classify, categorize, arrange into neat piles. So rather than provide a write-up of who I am, which you can get here for my professional background, I’ll provide labels – hats, if you will – that I put on at various times. Here are just a few of my hats:
- Trail and Ultra Runner
- Ditch Digger
Ultrarunner: A person you don’t see on the weekends because they’re “running in the woods somewhere.”
You know you’re a runner when
… your first thought when you look at the weekly weather forecast is how it’s going to affect your runs.
… your calendar is planned around race dates.
… you see a sign on the highway telling how many miles to the next town and you think “I could run that.”
