A Word from Meghan Hicks

I love helping people use trail running and ultrarunning as a vehicle to connect with our world and its people, and I love helping other communicators develop their craft. My personal interests include trail running, ultrarunning, adventure running, fastpacking, backpacking, yoga, and reading, along with watching sunrises and sunsets.
