Meet Trail Boy
I work at a desk all day as a mild-mannered, middle-aged newspaper reporter. I talk to people on the phone. I go to meetings and interviews. I sit and type.
My biggest exertion is running up the steps of the parking garage after work. So there’s nothing I like better than hitting the trails as often as possible.
Beautiful scenery. Cool shade. Soft surfaces. Endorphins. Challenging footwork. What’s not to like?
It’s the way running was meant to be.
I live in Indianapolis, but enjoy running everywhere, in just about any kind of weather. As long as there’s a trail beneath my feet.
I’ve been running off and on since college. I started getting serious in 2002, when I ran my first marathon (Chicago). I have run 10 trail or road marathons and one 50K.
