Trail run or bike to four waterfalls on the Penobscot River
Welcome to Salt and Persistence!
My name is Chickpea and I am an endurance runner living in Western Maine. I work hard, play hard and strive to balance my running against the demands of everyday life. I believe that most of us are more capable than we can imagine, but we need some help getting there. I've personally found that enough salt and some stubborn persistence can get me through about anything.
