My name is Andrew Rhodes. I started running cross county in high school, then participating in WVMTR events around 2011, and have been a lifetime member since 2014. Running to me is an exercise of inspiration and exploration. Experiencing the performance that the human body exhibits during running is inspiring -- all the muscles, lungs, eyes, arms and legs working synchronously. Running, especially trail running, allows me to explore parts of the wilderness usually allocated to only wild animals. With this nomination, I look forward to bringing my excitement about running to the board, club, and everyone else interested in exploring their trail running interest.
