Peter Bromka

Why I run
So that I don’t get stuck. Running opens my body and mind to the possibilities of each day.

My favorite place to run
Forest Park in Portland Oregon. From firelanes to single track our local forest has it all, including wildlife. Tucked a half mile from the city, this urban sanctuary is a gift to all Portlanders.

What I hope to convey with my writing
Honesty and insight. I hope to share the things I experience in hopes of connecting with other runners who have also seen and felt similar things.
