About Todd Jennings

I am a runner, a father, a philosopher, and a writer. I am also a seeker. Among the things that I seek are beauty and truth. From an external perspective, I've found both of those things when I run in the woods or on the quiet trails of the mountain tops . With each new run, more truth and beauty reveals itself to me. And so I keep running....

    I am extremely sorry that I was unaware of you running thru Tenafly, New Jersey. I would have welcomed you and run a distance with you.

    • Trail Todd says:

      Thanks, Laura. 🙂 Nowhere near as awesome as your 50-states feat, but I had fun, and we raised a pretty good amount of money for the charity, so I’m very happy about it.
      Hope to actually meet you in person soon. It seems we have a few dozen common friends in New York and Albany, yet our paths have yet to cross.

      Keep doing great things, and thanks again !
