Hi. I’m Bill Corbett, aka Marathon Mouth. I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and have more than 35 years experience (has it really been that long?) as a journalist, freelance writer and editor.
I’ve written four books, including the best-selling Day Trips From Calgary (Whitecap Books), the award-winning (Banff Mountain Book Festival) 11,000ers of the Canadian Rockies (a climbing guide and history of the highest peaks in said Rockies; new edition in 2016) and Marathon Mouth, an ebook that emerged from this blog.
I love exploring, whether it’s the badlands of southern Alberta, the mountain peaks and backcountry ski slopes of my backyard Rockies or the great desert landscapes of the U.S. Southwest. This blog thus marries my passion for road trips and great food along the way.
