If you haven’t been reading my blog for long, you may or may not know that I love to run. I’m no speedy Gonzalez or ultra-runner. Far from them. Instead, I run for the love of nature, the sheer physicality of it, and because it clears my mind of clutter and opens me up to my most creative thoughts.
Imagine five young adults heading into the Escalante Grand-Staircase National Monument in Utah to learn about Earth Science and the Rise of Dinosaurs from experts, explore their personal boundaries, and run a marathon each day. As a runner and a Utahn, who loves a good adventure, I couldn’t help but find out more.
Have I told you that I love to run? Have I also mentioned that despite this love, and how great running makes me feel, I struggle to make time for it – especially in the dark, cold of winter?
