The Road to Sundance is Difficult — Literally

”Storytelling needs a sense of place.”—Robert Redford The road to Sundance is difficult. Especially in a two-wheel drive car at wintertime. Because of snow, chains on your tires are often required if you’re not in an all-wheel drive or four wheel drive vehicle. I’m speaking of the literal road to Sundance, Utah. Of course, the […]

Binge-watching Gardeners’ World: A guide for U.S.-based cold-climate gardeners

The holidays are over. Seeds have been ordered (or not–I decided to take a break from seed sowing). The temperature is dropping (-5°F tonight) and the wind is blowing (wind chill advisory in effect). Time to binge-watch some gardening shows. I’ve been watching BBC 2’s Gardeners’ World for several years now, and I’ve got some tips for you to get the most out of it. Gardener’s World is an hour-long British gardening television show, currently moderated by Monty Don but also featuring oth...

All In: Reflecting on My First Year of Trail Running

The post All In: Reflecting on My First Year of Trail Running appeared first on iRunFar. It’s fitting that my journey to trail running was a winding one. I planned to start trail racing in 2020, and we all know how that year turned out. But here we are in 2022 and it’s been over a year since my first trail race — well, first official one anyway; more on that later — and I am fully in love with both the act of running on trails and the community. This past year had some failures, some victories,...

Happy New Year from Sun Valley/Ketchum, Idaho

Back in 1984, after graduating from film school in Los Angeles, I decided to finally take the solo cross-country trip I always wanted to take. While working as a freelance assistant photographer in school, another assistant told me that if I didn’t do it after I graduated I’d probably never do it. It was great […]

Merry Christmas to All

It’s Christmas Eve Eve! Time for me to finish wrapping the last of the presents and celebrate! I’ve got a light menu planned during the day since we’re going out to eat on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We will be driving around looking at Christmas lights and popping in to see a few friends.   I’m feeling extra nostalgic because this is likely the last Christmas we will celebrate in this house. We’ve raised the family here but now we’re ready to move on. My daughter is off to college ne...

How Do I Calculate My Snowball Debt?

The debt snowball method is a system that concentrates on paying off debts with the lowest balance first. The idea is that you’ll be able to clear your smallest debt the quickest. This allows for a quick win, which can keep you motivated to continue paying off your debts. Once you pay off the smallest debt, you then move on to focus on the next smallest debt. This is a popular and effective approach to paying off debt. Although it excludes mortgage loans, the debt snowball method can generall...

After Almost Two Years of COVID-19, Are We Back to Racing?

The post After Almost Two Years of COVID-19, Are We Back to Racing? appeared first on iRunFar. It has been one year and 10 months since COVID-19-induced global travel restrictions took effect — not that we’re counting, right?

While we thought we were finally out of the woods this summer, autumn and winter are bringing new mutati...

Free North Declaration: Let’s Parse Its Call to Arms

INTRODUCTION A group of lawyers have entered the fray against Covid-19 restrictions, issuing a document with the ringing title, “Free North Declaration” (“Declaration”) (see here for the version dated November 23, 2021). A strident endorsement of individual freedom, the document picks up on the canards that have permeated the debate over these many months. By identifying themselves as “Canadian lawyers”, one assumes the originators of the Declaration seek to give it a veneer of authority that m...
