First time I went to the Methow Valley in Eastern Washington State I thought, "I must find a way to get out here more often. Maybe move here..." I was in love with the valley: it's green lushness in June 2010, and the sunshine, oh the lovely sunshine! The sun kisses me like I've never been kissed. There were trails everywhere. I rather quickly manifested that dream when I began dating a man who lived out there and directed races in the area, including the one that I went out East to run in the first place.

If I've learned one thing in life, it's that if you want something, you take it. You grab it and run for your fucking life. You make it your dream. You find a way to bring it to life. I did this and I am so excited to offer my dream to my runners, every single day. I love every one of you and want you to feel my passion-- to therefore feel your passion! To feel LIFE! It's all we have. It's short, temporary and lovely beyond words or expressions.
