This Honors Tutorial is a writing workshop for students who are also runners or interested in trying running. During the semester, each student will choose an appropriate running goal—whether that is to run/walk a mile or complete a marathon. While each person works independently toward that goal (teacher included!), we will work together to reflect on our training, and we'll do so through a series of short writing exercises. This course is appropriate for students who have never run, students who are accomplished athletes, and anyone in between. Previous experience with running is not required: the sole requirement is a willingness to reflect on running through writing and to explore the connections between the two activities. We will also read and discuss Christopher McDougall's Born to Run.
