Ultra Trail Runner
Favorite Beer: I drink tea. Golden Monkey is my favorite.
Best thing about VFuel: Aside from the taste, the way it makes my tummy feel, the consistency and its fueling capabilities, I’d have to go with the sweet graphics on the packaging.
We are very excited to see what the next year has in store for this up and coming runner! Reese got her first win in 2011, the Devil Mountain 50 in Pagosa Springs, CO! Currently living in Denver, Reese has a big summer planned and we are proud to sponsor this very talented young runner!
Reese is the co-race director for The Telluride Mountain Run, a 55 mile race in the San Juan Mountains above Telluride, Colorado. Check it out!
Hometown: America. I’ve been a nomad. Born in Wilmington, NC.
‘Real’ Job: XC Coach and Affective Needs Center Para at Thomas Jefferson High School. Race director and personal running coach.
Guilty Pleasure:Eating almond butter, watching Sex and the City and wearing flannel. Preferably all at the same time.
Other Hobbies: Painting, writing and horseback riding.
Best recovery meal: Hot tea. Followed by a banana slathered in almond butter and drenched in honey. Plus sprinkled with cinnamon. Try it. You won’t regret it.
Favorite trail running memory: Seeing the finish line–during any race, but especially my first ultra. And running at Marshall Mesa during a wicked storm-seeing the lightening scatter across the sky and flatirons.
