It’s a NEW year and I’m changing things up- something I LOVE to do! I’m all about seeing new places, climbing new mountains, and connecting with people all over the world- it excites me! So when I started crafting my 2017 calendar, it was easy to make decisions about which races and events to do because I genuinely want to do as much as possible with the opportunities presented to me.

We’re already into the third month of the year and I’ve got two awesome races under my belt: The Zolkan 4 Day Stage Race in Chile and the Tarawera Ultramarathon in New Zealand- two mind-blowing events that left me nothing short of crazy excited and so grateful for what I get to do; I’m truly living my dream and enjoying every part of it!

Below is my full 2017 calendar, with the exception of one or two events that I’m waiting to confirm- when I do I will add them to the calendar, but for now, if you happen to be at any of these races or events, I would LOVE the chance to meet you! As always thanks for following along and for your continued kindness and encouragement; hope to see you soon!
