Stepping outside the proverbial box and into the unknown helped me to build an online community around running and living your dream. Following my passion has inspired others and pushed the limits of what is considered normal. Well, I’ve never been known to be normal. I tend to reach past that and push the envelope a bit.
As I was running across the Golden Gate Bridge for the first time this past February, a little thought took flight in my head: Wouldn’t it be awesome to travel all over the country seeing our national treasures by running on them or past them? As my feet pounded the asphalt and my eyes took in the white capped ocean waves, my mind was racing with the possibilities. The running community might embrace this idea and I could build a social community to support me while I took on this monumental task. The idea grew and blossomed. Not only could I run over great big bridges or up the trails at Mt. Rushmore, I could run in half marathons across the United States.
