Dana Anderson has only been running for a handful of years, but in that time she has accomplished quite a lot.

And for someone with his eye for a good scene, that’s not surprising in the least.

There’s just something special about trail runners and the trail running community that Mike has been a part of, and I’m starting to which I could experience it as well.

Our chat today covered all kinds of topics from trail running, to heartbreak, to placing goals on hold but not giving up on them, to relocating and using the running community to help settle in to a new location. Here are some of the highlights of today’s chat. Read more
