About the Author
In 2006 through a set of fortuitous encounters with trail runners, Meghan M. Hicks learned about the sport of trail running. In doing so, she realized that she could combine her formerly dueling loves of road running and exploring wild places on foot within one activity. Meghan was the 2013 winner of the Marathon des Sables in Morocco, the world's largest, oldest, and most competitive expedition-style trail running race. She has many other wins and podium finishes at trail races around the world. Meghan loves the people, places, and races that compose the trail running community, and she's passionate about telling the stories that define it. She is the senior editor of iRunFar.com, the world's premier trail running website; a contributing editor for Trail Runner magazine; and a former columnist for Marathon & Beyond. Hailing from Moab, Utah, Meghan is still most enthusiastic about using the sport as a means for fast-moving explorations of the earth's wildest places. Bryon Powell started running trails behind his parents' house in central New Jersey more than 20 years ago, and he hasn't stopped since. He's twice finished in the top 10 at the Leadville Trail 100 Run, twice won the under-30 age group at the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run, and finished the Hardrock 100. He still gets a thrill toeing the line at shorter trail races, too. In 2009, his love for the trails and writing about them led Bryon to stray from the well-traveled path of a Washington DC attorney and begin working full-time on iRunFar.com. He's previously written Relentless Forward Progress: A Guide to Running Ultramarathons in addition to many magazine articles on trail running. He's a contributing editor at Trail Runner magazine and an advisory board member at the American Trail Running Association. He calls the trails above Moab, Utah, home. They make him feel like a kid again.
