Favorite recovery meal: raw ahi tuna with arame and wakame seaweed doused with spicy sesame oil. Paired with a great IPA. And anything with potatoes.
Favorite trail running memory: Finishing the 93 mile Wonderland Trail that circumnavigates Mt. Rainier. I did the route solo and set the fastest known time. I jogged to the Wonderland Trail sign, the final steps of my journey, and kissed the ground like a pilot out of a storm and cried for the joy of it all. Some hikers paused and looked away quickly. I felt so blessed to have the strength to finish. All my thoughts of never doing another crazy adventure vanished. It was such a pivotal moment to know that I can do anything I dream up through my own strength.
