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.

    Genius! I like to pretend I’m a good Minnesotan and just take the cold on my face. Ski goggles also double for onion protection 🙂

    Good idea (I already use them for biking) but you may want to reconsider this concept:

    “If anything, the cold just get trapped inside – between the lenses and your face.”

    I pride myself as a goggled runner of no small esteem. I live on a beautiful island deep in the Pacific Northwest so our winters are very mild with few days below freezing but I find the true benefits to the runner begoggled come more from a reminder of the beautiful aesthetic available to practitioners of the Father of Dance. For you see, our stark expressions and huffing and puffing can be off putting for the stroll-inclined pedestrians we hop around and dodge on our never ended pilgrimage to vitality. Goggles help remind them, and ourselves, that are we doing something wonderful and fun. I wear a set of leather WWII tank commander goggles (appropriate, for I am a tank) and dash about every which way. Japanese tourists ask to get their pictures taken with me, kids in sun glasses give me the thumbs up and at red lights I pull the goggles up to my forehead and look around and am surely a sight dramatic if ever there was one. It’s race day +71 and I know that when I hit the mainland I’ll be taking my running goggles with me to glory.

    Wont you all start wearing goggles around? It’s much better than not wearing goggles like a filthy beast of the field. We are runners! We are KINGS! Let goggles be thy crown, for we run towards a future so bright….

      Well said! I’d love to see one of those pics with the tourists.
