Eduardo Garcia is outrageously optimistic. After spending a year in recovery from an accident he set out to catch up on his life through his cooking, his connections with friends and family, and his passion for the wilderness. The key ingredient? Running. To him “Running is the imme-diate exchange of effort to get positive, feel good energy back. Not many things have such a clean interaction. It’s such a simple transaction.” For Eduardo, a run is more than just physical. It’s his way of reconnecting with the outdoors.
