Between praising the virtues of night running and discussing the challenges of running on sandy beaches we’re bringing you this week an extra special interview with U.S. Congressman Derek Kilmer representing Washington’s 6th District. Derek is co-sponsoring an important bill with bipartisan support that aims to help the National Parks with their maintenance backlog. There’s discussion about sending letters to the universe, hiking with fellow members of congress at the Hoh, and how we can get involved helping our public lands. Don’t miss this one.
