25 Miles (40 km) of distance, 10,800 ft (3291 m) of climbing, 4 laps up and down Grandeur Peak. This weekend, I participated in my first ever (and the 8th annual) Run Up for Air (RUFA), started by @derajslc. I’ve been a clean air activist in Utah for almost a decade. Usually, we’re protesting at the Capitol or meeting with legislators. It was a breath of fresh air (pun intended) to merge the passion for the mountains with a strong environmental message. The people of Utah want action on air quality now. It was inspiring to see everyone out there pushing themselves for a good cause!
