Winds of Change

The Winds of Change

Running was always my way of talking with Dad, it has served me well my whole life.

On a lonely beach, on a quiet forest trail, even in the madness of a city, the connection could always be found!
There was always a simple beauty in it, running is simply putting one foot in front of the other, nothing more, nothing less.
Yet this simple act of freewill can defeat even the strongest of men.
It can also bring the meekest to great pride in themselves!

New Endeavor

Hello everyone. I just joined today. I am thrilled to have stumbled across this site. I am excited to find people in West Michigan who have similar interest in trail running or running in general. I have never really called myself a "runner" although I have always had to run when training for hockey and always enjoyed it. With a sincere passion for spending time outdoors I look forward to really submerging myself into trail running. I am going through some tough life changes and a difficult break up so hopefully this site and running will be a good outlet to relieve stress.
