Nathan Freeburg

Nathan started running when he was 14. 20+ years later, he’s still going. When he’s not running, he enjoys exploring the city with his son, finding new restaurants with his wife, traveling, or backpacking. He loves dark beer, dark chocolate, and dark coffee.

Nathan currently lives in Portland, Oregon, but works in Minneapolis and runs wherever he is. Favorite Minnesota running route is anything that takes him along the Mississippi River.
Race Results.

Nathan’s day job is a Consultant with Leadership Vision in Downtown Minneapolis.

    “It’s easier to run every day than to decide every day.” Great tip!

    And this: “Like a school graduation, the event itself is an acknowledgement of everything you did to get there.” You are so right Dale! I enjoy the journey almost as much and probably more than the destination itself!! Congrats on all you’ve accomplished thus far and good luck in your 2016 TCM journey!! 🙂

    The journey is almost over, so here are a few people to thank:
    • My wife, Linda. I knew you converted when I said I’m running “to town” and instead of saying “you’re crazy” you asked “which town?”
    • My daughter and running partner, Chelsea – see article above.
    • My other children Alyssa, Kip, and Rhett; in-law Timothy; future in-law Brian, and grandson Josiah for cheering me on.
    • Twin Cities in Motion first-time marathoners Facebook group. We followed each other’s ups and downs all summer.
    • Dana from OSR Physical Therapy for keeping me going through an injury.
    • Team USA Minnesota runners, especially Heather – it was an honor to run with you.
    • Pastor Adam, whose idea it was to run a marathon, and even smarter, to have someone else do it instead.
    • Most of all our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, through whom all things are possible.
