This September 4 - October 11, 2020 I'll be running 200+ miles across the entire state of Minnesota to promote diversity and inclusion in outdoors culture (more at Adventure Pride). Even during COVID's new normal, this socially-distanced project will safely take you on a journey across the region during one of its most beautiful seasons!
