Father Tim
Tim Schenck is an Episcopal priest, husband to Bryna, father to Benedict and Zachary, and \x34master\x34 to Delilah (about 50 in dog years). Since 2009 I've been the rector of the Episcopal Parish of St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, Mass. (on the South Shore of Boston). I've also served parishes in Maryland and New York. When I'm not tending to my parish, hanging out with my family, or writing, I can usually be found drinking good coffee -- not that drinking coffee and these other activities are mutually exclusive. I hope you'll visit my website at www.frtim.com to find out more about me, read some excerpts from my book \x34What Size are God's Shoes: Kids, Chaos & the Spiritual Life\x34 (Morehouse, 2008), and check out some recent sermons.

June Topic: Tell about someone awesome you’ve met through trail running


Every month I write in the TrailRunnerMag Blog Symposium they have some pretty fun and sometimes controversial topics – We are backing it down a notch this month by being able to write about a more friendly topic.


Whenever anyone asks me about trail running – the very first thing I point out every single time is the community – and the friendship.


I do not initially point out the benefits of avoiding roads -It’s not becoming more aware of nature – not about getting dirty- not about any of the other amazing benefits of trail running.


- I talk about the community.


I talk about waiting for each other at trail junctions so people don’t take the wrong trail. I talk about sharing s-caps with someone during a race so they won’t bonk – even if that means they beat you in the end. I talk about the post race beers that we always have – including in the pouring rain last night

I talk about the laughter – the joy – the fun – but most of all it’s the relationships.


This amazing aspect of Trail Running led to the start of #TrailsRoc.


I could easily go ahead and say the someone awesome I met from trail running wasMike Wolfe - I could share about the time we all got to run with Krissy Moehl. I could write about doing the Media Panel at the Cayuga Trail 50 where Ron got to hang out with Sage -


But really, the "awesome" people I want to write about … That’s  "us".


The 4 #TrailsRoc founders -


If we never met Mike Wolfe, never ran with Krissy Moehl, never interviewed Sage -We would still have done what we did –  We would still have started #TrailsRoc because without the elites – we still love what we do.

"How is it possible that the Rochester and Finger Lakes Region has such world class trail running and yet… there’s no website collecting all the information in one place and promoting trail running?"
