After seven years at the helm of UltraRunning magazine, I’ve got a different kind of experience on my horizon. Some of you know that I’ve been working on an MBA for the past year, and I unexpectedly have the chance to complete my degree in Germany, and receive dual U.S. and European graduate business degrees. It’s a tough decision but, ultimately, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live in an intellectual community abroad, and be able to run some of the many fine ultras throughout Europe on the weekends.
Thank you, readers, for sharing with me and the rest of our readership some of your most thrilling, intimate, and inspirational race moments – in pictures and words – over the past seven years. I know our new editor will also take great care in presenting ultrarunning to the world through The Voice of the Sport.
Note from Karl Hoagland, Publisher of UltraRunning Magazine
I can say that in the past seven months since purchasing UltraRunning Magazine, Tia has insured a smooth transition and I have learned so much from her. At the same time we have been able to implement some improvements to the already-exceptional magazine, its infrastructure, and most importantly the wonderful content provided by our roster of eight great columnists and our race reports Editor. Things are headed very much in the right direction for our sport and for UltraRunning magazine, but we will miss Tia in the months and years ahead.
Please join me in thanking Tia for all of her contributions to UltraRunning Magazine, and to the greater ultrarunning community over the past seven years, and in wishing her good fortune and more success in the years ahead.
