A Word from Sabrina Little

There is a rich tradition of inquiry about virtue, vice, flourishing, and suffering in Philosophy and in the Humanities. This tradition has been a great resource in my own running, so I would like to share it with others. My personal interests include trail running, ultrarunning, reading, baking, spending time with my family, and telling jokes.
