About me

 

I am a veterinary practitioner and writer located in Northern California who loves a good story and lots of miles on the trail. How many miles? My favorite distance is 100 mile events, whether on horseback or in a pair of running shoes. When I'm not on the trails, I can be found writing-- or reading-- my next favorite book.

The blog has been going continuously since January 2009. After over a decade and 1,600+ posts the mission of the blog continues to be simple: inspire and motivate you to go out and do exciting things that make life richer, even if they seem impossible. It is the little steps and choices every day that culminate into your dreams.

 

I’m committed to honesty, sharing the bad and the good, creating educational resources, and writing a good story – whether through the good ‘ole written word, comics, presentations, or anything else that strikes my fancy.
