TRAIL RUNNING

I love to run, especially on trails in the forest and up mountains. In Ann Arbor I loved the Run Woodstock 5 mile race, placing in the top 5 in both 2012 and 2013. Here in Norway it’s all running up mountains, like the killer 800 m ascent in 3.7 km Rosendal Nuten Opp in August 2014; the FjellMaraton over vidden in Bergen; the epic Folgefonna Opp, 1400 m from fjord to glacier, in August 2015; and lots of others races… including, I hope, an ultra in Iceland in summer 2017.

COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP

I am currently a styremedlem (member of the board) of Turnerhytten, a little cabin up on Ulriken that serves pancakes and hot chocolate to hikers. I am also the Vice Lay Chair of the Committee  (Vestry) for the Bergen Anglican Church.

TWO MILES DESIGN

The design team W. Randolph Miles and Laura S. Miles, as two miles design, specializes in graphic design for print media: posters, pamphlets, brochures, invitations, announcements, business cards, greeting cards, etc. We also design logos and business graphic portfolios, as well as graphic scenarios for websites.

MUSIC

I play the treble viola da gamba and am a member of the Viola da Gamba Society of America.

We haven’t found much of a viol community in Bergen, but in New Haven, I was a founding member of the Yale Temperament Viol Consort, directed by Marie Dalby (Szuts) and later Ros Morley, and I studied with Grace Feldman at the Neighborhood Music School.

Here in Bergen, I organize and sing in the choir of the Bergen Anglican Church, resident in Mariakirken, a twelfth-century stone church. In New Haven, for four years I sang as an alto in the choir at Christ Church Episcopal, and served on the Vestry for one year. Prior to that I sang in the Selwyn College Chapel Choir, Cambridge, UK; the Schola Cantorum of S. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Providence, RI; the Queen’s College Chapel Choir, Oxford, UK; and the Girls Choir at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Buffalo, NY.
