I am a classical musician for a living and, travel a lot to perform with various orchestras. My current schedule has me based in the Midwest, performing with orchestras in Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Indiana. To put it simply, my life has been anything but predictable. Throughout the past 15 years, I have lived in six states as well as a foreign country.
Because my professional life can be so unstable, I find stability in running. Running is something I can do anywhere. Sometimes that requires crashing local running groups wherever I’m traveling, or running on a beat-up treadmill in a hotel fitness center.
