Grace - I was introduced to running when I joined my high school cross country and track teams in California. I loved the exploration, challenge, silent reflection and camaraderie of the sport and was inspired to run my first marathon in college.  After discovering cycling in grad school, I was bitten by the triathlon bug and spent the next five years committed to the sport, racing distances from sprint to ironman. I also relished opportunities to explore the backcountry and aimed to venture off road each year, taking hiking or backpacking outings to the Adirondacks, Joshua Tree, Jotunheim, Catskills, Patagonia and White Mountains. As a break from ironman training, I decided to hit the trails and let my mind wander in the wild. I was taken with the beauty of the trails and the different challenges posed by the terrain. In the last couple of years, I've tackled a number of 50ks and a 50 miler. I love the sport and the awe-inspiring cast of characters that populate the community. This year I worked with Elizabeth and trained with the Mountain Peak Fitness Trail Racing Team to complete my first 100k in Kansas and 100 miler out in Bryce Canyon. I am honored to train with this talented group of athletes and am excited for the shared adventures to come.
