Trail running. Mountain ultramarathons. As you may have noticed (considering what I’ve been writing on all year), I find these activities to be among the greatest examples of an exploratory way of life.
It’s getting outdoors, getting into and doing something positive for the bodies we are, coming home in movement that lets all thought ebb away even as it carries to a deeper understanding of selves and locations. It’s so much.
It’s also a reason for and result of a love of wild nature – just what so many argue we’d need more of, in order to love and protect the world.
