Wes Judd—the online fitness editor at Outside magazine—is an enthusiastic writer, editor, and researcher who has covered subjects ranging from ultrarunning and BASE jumping to recycled wastewater and getting away with murder. He has interviewed musicians, Nobel Prize winners, athletes, authors, and scholars. His work has appeared in print and online at The Week, 5280, Australian Geographic, and Pacific Standard, where he was an editorial fellow in 2015. As a prolific runner and backpacker, he has also traveled across the globe for work, education, and kicks. Wes will now stop referring to himself in the third person.

I appreciate you visiting my corner of the internet. To put it less formally, I am a young journalist who is perpetually trying to find the balance between time spent online and in the mountains. I am interested in way too many things—in places and people and ideas and culture—and I attempt to be an informed consumer of them all, which is quite the exhausting process. Sometimes I'll write about these things, and other times I'll take their picture, but I can always find a way to neatly put it online. Take a look at what I've done and please feel free to reach out.
