Since then, we've stayed in touch via the internets and social media mostly and our exchanges have centered around our mutual love for trail running, gear, mountains, and coffee. On our most recent trip across, we met up with him again in SLC to share food, beer, and stories. At that time, he'd just completed his first hundred miler, The Bear, and his stoke-level for ultra/adventure/mountain running seemed to be at an all-time high. That entusiasm is evident in one of his latest projects, Merit Endurance . The guy definitely has an eye for design and pretty much anything aesthetically rad:
On this blog, he interviews some masters of endurance, and also showcases some great videos and photography. He even posted my silly little poem on the "Thought Collective" page. Thanks Jay!
