From the earliest days of my running I have been inspired by Meghan Hicks. Her writings on fastpacking were a huge resource for my dad and I when we did the JMT. An accomplished ultrarunner, a wonderful writer, and a thoughtful person Meghan and I had a delightful chat. It was about more than just trailrunning. Our discussion ranged from our country's new administration to our experience of day to day life. Life comes at us hard, like Meghan and I discuss, but we can all learn to better handle it. In our world of fast paced hectics and vapid living let's all learn to be a little more aware. Hopefully you can enjoy Meghan's thoughts, opinions, and observations. Be motivated by Meghan to get out, push hard in, and save our world. Change starts with one person.
