In my own words…
I was born and raised in Minnesota for the most part, and spent my childhood being scrappy outdoors. I fell in love early with our annual trips out West and to the Boundary Waters, it was in these places that a love for nature flourished! Wanderlust took over in early adulthood and I spent many years away from home traveling as far away as New Zealand.
A return trip home that was supposed to be short resulted in a new form of traveling: running! The road marathon was a catalyst for so many things after, from new friendships, new distances, and bigger events.
I am a firm believer that activity and the outdoors are hugely impactful and a necessity for a fulfilled life experience! That is certainly what it has meant for me, adventure on!
