Chrysta lives in Phoenixville, PA with her husband Denny and dog Detective John Kimble, and works in finance for a non-profit. She was talked into running a 5K in 2018, and what started out as an efficient way to get healthier in her thirties became a real joy. You’ll probably see her on the Schuylkill River Trail, or in Valley Forge National Park seeking adventure and reflection. She’s currently practicing heart rate training to build a strong aerobic base in order to run her first marathon and ultramarathon. You can find her on Instagram for her running diary and journal of what she’s learning about choosing joy and gratitude every day at @joyfullyrunning.
