About Me

Hi there, my name is Ashley.  I don't possess any special powers or running prowess - although special powers would rock.

I started running to lose weight and fell in love with the sport and the soreness and the lessons that come from running through a Montana winter - lesson one, cover your hands if you like having fingers and want to keep them for future use.

I run in - Saucony ProGrid Guide 6.  They're named Mercury and Mercury.

When I'm not running - I also do yoga, swim, hike, write, watch really bad and really good horror movies, and read anything I can get my hands on.

Favorites -

Distance - Five miles.  It's just long enough that I feel like I did something and short enough that I always feel like I could turn around and do it again.

Running Weather -  I'm a total wuss in the heat, overcast and 55 degrees is perfect.  Running in the snow or rain makes me feel like a badass.

Place - You can usually find me along the Waterworks trails in Missoula, or the Rattlesnake trails, sometimes the Kim Williams trail.  Missoula is pretty much a running mecca.

Runners - Shalane Flanagan, Kara Goucher, Geoff Roes, Anton Krupicka, and Scott Jurek.
