Reflections | Escape 2 New York

Words by: Quinton Jacobs Images by: Jen Ng  & Dhani Oks   We’ve been back for a few weeks, and the scope of what we accomplished is only now starting to sink in.

Aire Libre | Running and Transcendence in Chiapas Mexico

Words by: Hakim Davy Images provided by: Aire Libre I don’t really know where to start with this tale of adventure.  Exploring culture, food, and land that looks like it has been untouched by corruption and greed really was a mind melt.

Words and images by: Stephen Kersh Amidst a gaggle of runner-centric tattoos stampeding through another dang marathon-specific workout on Lake Mary Road in Flagstaff, Arizona, a red maple leaf flashes bright as it continues on its perpetual journey on Rory Linkletter’s thigh.

The Art of Endurance.
