At the end of November I had the privilege of being interviewed by Western States Ultra, seven time top 10 men finisher, Andy Jones-Wilkins, for a series of essays he was writing for his AJW Taproom column found on the iRunFar website. He was writing about how the meta-cognitive skills of persistence, resilience, patience, courage, and grit affect ultrarunning. He wanted to know how ultra running helped me to recover after the death of my 15 year-old son, Colt, who took his own life in June 2010.
It's interesting to discover through Andy's articles how running developed skills can positively impact other areas of your life. Please click on the link to the column above (if you already haven't) to learn more.
