Based out of: Boulder, Colorado.
Favorite Distance: 50k! For now… ;)
Favorite place to run: How am I supposed to pick just one?! Because I’ve been on the road for a few weeks now, I’m currently eager to run Lion’s Lair in Boulder. I can run the swooping switchbacks from my house, leading to the top of Mount Sanitas and stunning views of Boulder and the flatirons. I run it at least once a week, and it never ceases to amaze me that I can go from the hustle and bustle of downtown to the solace of the top of a mountain in just slightly over half an hour!
Currently training for: adidas INFINITE Trails World Championships; TNF 50, San Francisco; some other races along the way, including hopefully the Tromso Mountain Challenge in Norway
