Part 2 of our blog series on experiences on the Redbird Crest Trail that led to the creation of the Redbird Crest 100K.

I'm busy. You're busy. We're all busy. Is it true that we just don't have enough time, or are we just prioritizing all wrong?
What pain? What fear? Just go!
Words fall short when things just don't make sense in this world. How should we react?
What's your excuse? That's what they want to know. What I want to know is this: why do they care?
