"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.

Reflection on Kettle Moraine 100k

I am really glad I ran this race as it’s been on my want-to-run list for a few years. As a runner, it was a great training and racing experience. As a coach, it was a valuable experience on how important the details are.

The Ups and Downs of Night Running

I am passionate about running relays. I love how it builds community and encourages (necessitates?) collaborative problem solving. Most relays aren’t inherently competitive and if

Nuances of Leave No Trace

Chances are you’ve heard of the 7 Principles of Leave No Trace. While they vary slightly depending on what sort of outdoor pursuit you’re engaged in, ultimately, they intend to protect the natural resources and the user experience of such by encouraging certain behaviors…

It’s OK, We are with You!

The value we assign ourselves during races is a construct. That cannot define us. But the joy we find in the sport and the kindness we share in the Community- that is who we really are.

Raccoon Dog Stole My Bra
