Letter from the Executive Director: Run Wild Missoula Is My Motivation To Run

by Eva Dunn-Froebig, Run Wild Missoula Executive Director

At the close of my last season of cross-country, a teammate and friend decided to put a goofy list of awards together for everyone on the team. I was awarded "Least Likely to Run Again." The title might have offended anyone else, but not me. Although I was committed to the sport and my team, running wasn't my life in college . . . Click here to read more of Eva's article about running the Missoula Half Marathon.
