#runningtheparks is not just about National Parks. It is about getting outside and enjoying any of our public lands. It is about getting outside and feeling what nature can do for you. It is about getting outside! My friend Jack and I went out for a run on New Years Eve 2017 into New Years Eve 2018. When I told him I was going to do it he said "why not". Why not? It was 10 degrees in Golden, Colorado! But it is so much better than a packed bar or standard issue party. We were investing in our health and well-being rather than doing what everyone else was doing. 

Get out in 2018 and do something new, something that excites you, something unexpected. Welcome to 2018! May this year be the best of your life and may they only get better.
