"Take A Bet On Yourself!"

6 years ago, I decided to do something outside of my comfort zone, took some chances, and hoped for the best.

There were nerves of how things would be received, anxiety over not doing enough, and the constant fear of failure…not only for me personally, but for the purpose and mission I hoped would reshape the current state of the trail running and hiking communities.

Through this experience my mantra became “take a bet on yourself.” I realized that if I didn’t believe in myself and abilities, how could I ever create change or inspire others to believe in their capabilities to make change. 

I hope TS community members will embrace the mantra of “take a bet on yourself,” as it’s the most powerful belief one can have in her pursuit of life.

Starting and Re-Starting Running – Back to the Basics

For many of us runners, the internal dialogue might look a little different but the underlying theme is the same: we get in our own way when it comes to running for the first time or re-starting after being away from it…

It Takes a Crew

Crewing and pacing and volunteering at races are some of my absolute favorite things to do. I know the joyful power that community brings to races, so why did I feel like I wasn’t worthy of some of that?
