A Word from Sabrina Little

  • Why Do You Choose This Activity (that is, writing your column/articles or the profession behind it, if that’s relevant): 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.
  • Personal Interests: trail running, ultrarunning, reading, baking, spending time with my family, telling jokes
