The Gathering of the Tribe

The Gathering of the Tribe

This tribe is our community, our church, our group of like minded individuals. We share stories, make deep connections on runs using little or no words, and we find ourselves amidst groups where no one gives a sideways glance about a 6 hour run through the mountains. We revel in the presence of those who have similar shared experience, and we breath a little easier because of it. We are bolstered by the community, encouraged by other people’s race performances, and by our communal tenacity to push tin search of our limits.
