Ultra Running: A Love | Hate Affair

BY JONATHAN SOON
@ VOL 3 ON JUL 01, 2016

An ultramarathon is a race that goes beyond the 42km distance. Jonathan Soon says he foolishly signed up and completed his first 100km race in October 2014. His presentation focuses on the human side (i.e emotional) of the ultramarathon journey. He shares on the toughness and the intensity of preparing and running for one, and most importantly, the values and rewards beyond Personal Bests (PBs) or the distance he has run. These lessons are not restricted in the realms of ultra-running. The things he has learned have assisted his growth in his other passions as well.

Ribbon of Green: DL&W Rail Trail

BY JAJEAN ROSE-BURNEY
@ VOL 19 ON MAR 14, 2018

"Amid a dense urban environment, a beautiful ribbon of green stretches off into the distance…”

In Ribbon of Green: DL&W Rail Trail from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, Deputy Executive Director of the Western New York Land Conservancy, Jajean Burney, describes the vision of a 1.5-mile elevated linear park, greenway and rail trail on the former Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad corridor in Buffalo, New York. Similar to the High Line park in Manhattan, where an abandoned stretch of the New York Central Railroad has been transformed to a vibrant public space, the goal of the DL&W Rail Trail is to redevelop an obsolete infrastructure as public space to encourage human connection with nature and neighborhoods.
