She loves altitude training, the forest and sharing her love for such a beautiful place to run with others.

Flagstaff is situated at 7000ft. Breathing and running is bit harder here than at sea level. The run locations have been chosen with that in mind. We will be slowing down and adjusting based on everyone’s pace. There will be time for an optional easy run after arrival on Thursday.
