About Me


I'm an adventurer first and foremost. I play with maps and create races full time and it's fun with my company Destination Trail. I also produce and host a podcast called Humans of Ultraruning. I am an avid trail runner, skier and adventurer. I enjoy using all the tools I can to explore and I love mountain biking, back country skiing, slack lining in addition to trail running which will always be my first love due to its perfect simplicity. Even more importantly, I am a single mom to two amazing girls, and family is always number 1! For as much as I love running adventures, I appreciate and am grateful for my family and the adventure that is being a parent.

I'm here to answer the tough trail running questions like "What makes ultra runners so crazy?"  Or "Why not run 200 miles in the mountains tomorrow?"  Or "How can I challenge and inspire athletes next as a race director?" When I'm not running, writing or causing trouble, I work as a race director organizing and executing a trail race marathon/half marathon series in Washington State as well as the first single loop 200 mile trail race in the USA, the Tahoe 200, and the Bigfoot 200 mile/ 100k/40mi/20mi races, point-to-point trail races in the Cascade Mountains.  My latest adventure event is the 240 mile Moab 240 Endurance Run. I own Destination Trail, LLC, a company that organizes some of the most scenic, challenging and, well, LONG trail races in the USA. I'm also a student of power vinyasa yoga. I like to see the world from many perspectives and I hope my blog helps you see it that way too.

I run for Ultimate Direction and Altra!

I love hearing from you. Please feel free to send me feedback at runcandicerun@gmail.com or comment on my posts. You can also reach me about work related questions at: racedirector@destinationtrailrun.com

Be the mountain: be playful, be wild, be dangerous but never, never be boring.
