Everyday I wake up and get to work on becoming a better trail runner, sometimes it's on a treadmill, other times it's on beautiful mountain trails, and on the best days it's on bomber scree fields.
My favorite trail loop to run in the San Juans is the Boulder Gulch Tr/Tower Mountain Summit/Hematite Basin Trail link up. It's a beautiful single track loop with a mixed bag of scree, ridge line and buttery trail running all while summiting the iconic Silverton peak.
One of the few humans who has completed more than one hundred 100-mile races. I run every single day, and it has completely transformed my life.
Big Cottonwood, UT
Spending as much time as I can in the mountains is a priority to me. I live in a small cabin outside of Salt Lake City that provides the perfect opportunity to train for the most challenging ultras. As much as I like moving through the wilderness, I also enjoy and need a lot of time relaxing and reflecting. I'm a versatile person and love sharing experiences with my friends just as much as days alone in solitude.
