My name is Greg Courtice, I’m a 29 year old ultra runner living in Kelowna, British Columbia and am currently completing a PhD in Engineering at UBC Okanagan.
I started my running career in my early 20’s and have since developed a passion for long distance trail races. This passion has led me to discover personal successes on and off the trails, most importantly developing a healthy body and mind.
Throughout most of my life I have struggled with depression. Running has helped me overcome many challenges with managing mental health, bringing a greater awareness to personal mental and physical well-being. These challenges have been mirrored closely with the challenges of preparing for and completing ultra marathons. I created this blog as a place to document my endeavours, focusing on the pursuit of health and happiness.
