“A long stretch of road will teach you more about yourself than a hundred years of quiet introspection.” – Patrick Rothfus

Picture of a long road in TN supporting the quote from Patrick Rothfus and tying it to past experiences.

When was the last time you did something to challenge yourself? What would it be like to be stripped of all your comforts and connections? How would you navigate days full of uncertainty and unknown? Who would you meet along the way and what impact would you have on each other? Where do you begin, eat, drink, sleep, and end? Why do you do this…or anything? Join Rob on his annual cross state journey to find answers to these questions and many others along the way.

Current Journey

Currently Rob is coaching the girl’s cross country team at Stillwater High School. This is a great opportunity to help others develop a love for running and find the sweet spot between their comfort zone and their stretch point.
