The Summit Seeker: How Running Changed My Life

I'm an ultra-distance trail and mountain runner, blogger and adventurer whose life was changed by running. I started running at a time of overwhelming stress and desperation, and running shifted my perspective, restored me, and healed my wounds. I wrote a book, The Summit Seeker, which records my experiences from my first 5K all the way to finishing my third 100-mile foot race.

My hope is that it will inspire you to see running not as a weight loss or fitness tool, but as a journey in your own personal growth. Here, I take you along on some of my epic runs, and pass along some of what I've learned about myself through running.
