Being on the trails is my happy place. Joy, ease, and creativity spills out of me when moving outside, as it does for so many of us trail runners. A Washington state native, I currently live in rural Alaska where the trailheads are never crowded, but often snow covered. It’s a new challenge I’m trying to roll with as I train for my next big event, the 2022 Hardrock 100. When not running or crafting new stories for UltraSignupNews – I’m a wife, mom of a teenager, a toddler, and a Weimaraner, a yoga teacher, and grad school student. It’s a blessed and full plate, and I’m so grateful to now be sharing this trail journey with each of you.
