My current title is senior content editor for the Runner’s World website. I’ve also been the editor of Running Times, and have written or co-authored seven books on running. I’ve also written for The Atlantic, Slate, Outside, Al Jazeera English and the Washington Post, among others.
I live in South Portland, Maine, with my wife, photographer Stacey Cramp, and our dog. I’m fortunate to be able to apply my writing and editing skills to topics I care about. I started running in 1979, and estimate that my odometer passed the 100,000-mile mark at some point in 2012. I was pretty good there for a little while—30:48 for 10K, 51:01 for 10 miles, 1:08:40 for a half marathon—but have always run primarily because I like it and to keep from going on shooting sprees. I’ve never run a good marathon, owing to too much vertical motion in my stride, a ridiculously high sweat rate and general wimpiness.
