Liz is a life long runner and discovered a passion for the trails early on as an Ohio native. A NOLS backpacking course ignited her love for the outdoors and illuminated the importance of conservation and stewardship. Liz loves the inclusivity of the trail running community where she can connect in nature as her most authentic self. She is an Ambassador for Athletic Brewing Company and recently celebrated one year of sobriety. Off the trails, she enjoys mixing up mocktails and exploring the mountains and coastline in her new home state, North Carolina.
