Do you get a kick out of watching loved ones slide face first into ooey gooey mud? Do you daydream about crawling on your hands and knees through pits of sludge? Do you have a white t-shirt that would look much better dyed brown? Then the Irvine Lake Mud Run is an event you should add to your bucket list. With 32 oozing obstacles spaced out over three-ish miles, the mud run provides exactly what mudders of every shape, size and speed are craving: mud in every nook and cranny.

Megan Epler Wood has been leading the sustainable tourism movement since before anyone knew there was a need for one. In 1990, Megan founded The International Ecotourism Society, which was the first NGO worldwide to dedicate itself to the sustainable development of tourism. She served as TIES’ president and CEO for 12 years before moving on to start her own consulting firm, EplerWood International. Megan was kind enough to spare a few minutes to talk with us and answer a few burning questions about her universal definition of Sustainable Tourism and her views on travel.
