The best part of my new found hobby is that I am setting an example for my children to go [get outside] instead of watching TV and playing video games.” —B. Voracek
“Because adventures, particularly the mountainous variety, let us know we are alive.” —Ross Saxton

“I like to think we gals are the stronger sex in our family!” —Kathleen Waters
“Trails are all I run, and I love being near the mountains and spending hours in them.” —Reader “SunDevils”
“I’ve been a runner all my life. OK, maybe I didn’t consider myself a runner when I was a toddler, but I remember when I was in 3rd grade and I had to run a mile around the playground for my elementary school’s field day competition. I remember thinking to myself: ‘This right here. This is fun. It’s hard, but it’s fun.’” —Megan Killian
