Hello, and welcome to the Tundra Runners web log. Let us start with a couple of introductions:

Eric is the "crazy guy with the toe shoes," around here. He has been running off and on since high school, and has more recently taken up running in minimalist footwear. Though he spent a couple years training for a marathon he now thinks it is more important to enjoy running than hit a split time.

Ed is the "guy with the big watch". He started attempting to run for fitness in college with little success. He was far from in shape and wanted to stop every time he would pick up his pace beyond a brisk walk. After college he spent a couple years working at sea and spending most days traveling. He made a commitment that if he was to settle down he would get into some sort of shape. That time came just over two years ago (when he started working with Eric) and he hasn't looked back since.

Together we are the Tundra Runners, two guys who live, work and run in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska.
