Another outdoor, mountain loving and trail running gal with an undying love for adventure. I started running at a city park in Houston during the summer of 2010. The run stoke continued to grow after I moved to Denver, CO in 2011 and eventually transitioned onto the trails in 2013 after running my first 50k.

In 2016 my instinct for always chasing the what-if’s, adventure and a “go with your gut” mentality brought me to whittling down my belongings to fit into 2 storage totes, a Patagonia backpack and moving to Flagstaff, AZ with Josh after we met on a run in Steamboat Springs, CO while training for Run Rabbit Run 100. Flagstaff was home for a few months before we moved to Teton Valley, Id. We enjoy our sustainable (with the goal being zero waste!) lifestyle and the art of slow living while each working 40+ hours a week, the endless adventures that surround us and farm life with our chickens and ever growing garden with the goal to sell eggs and fresh produce locally while encouraging others to seek and develop sustainable lifestyles.

My enthusiasm and love for adventure continues to grow after every discovery in authenticity, lesson in grit, strength and humility. No matter if I’m “racing” or out for the adventure, I’m thankful for my journey. Whether it be comparable to buttery smooth single track or that technical rocky stuff and uphill climbs that I’m excited to get better at. Always go with your gut, lead with love, and say, “YES!” to adventure.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you find something here to take with you. :)

    Glad you are enjoying Colorado! It’s not too shabby! Love to see what fellow Denver female runners are up to and the trails they hit up. I’m enjoying reading your blog and following your adventures.
