I couldn’t agree with you more. I remember going into a job interview when I was training for my first marathon. “Can you tell us about a recent challenge you’ve faced?” “I just happen to be training for a marathon…” And so on and so forth. Running is a great metaphor for just about EVERYTHING. It’s kind of a problem when talking to non-runners but I’ve learned to dial it back a bit.

Geoscientist, runner, and writer. I will never stop being curious about the world.
