I'm sure there will be some good trails in Greenville, but they certainly won't be as close, as long, or with the sweeping vistas I have enjoyed here. Logan is truly a trail runner's paradise, and I have been fortunate to enjoy it!

Thoughts on leaving Utah
Due to work, my family will be leaving Utah after 8 years and moving to Greenville, SC. While excited for the move, I am realizing more and more how much I will miss Utah, specifically running in the Bear River mountains around Logan. I have been very fortunate to live so close to some gorgeous and rather large mountains. I can leave my house at 4500 ft and take an almost unlimited number of trails up to almost 10,000 ft. In the past year, in particular, I have done more and more of my runs exclusively on trails, aided in part by my running partner, Cody. As any trail runner will tell you, having someone to run with allows you to go further and faster, and opens up many more route possibilities. It's safe to say I have now run more miles with Cody than with any other person in my running career.
