There was a feeling during the show today that our guest was capable of anything. She was the Ultrarunner of the Year in 2013, a fitness model, and a successful road runner before that. Heck, she even ran a 50k while pregnant this year. She trains other runners and athletes and is also a race director in Colorado. She is hosting the first ever Colorado 200, a 200 mile trail race, it’s ambitious. For her success athletically she is still humble, and unique, and there are tons of lessons in today’s Athlete On Fire show![/bgsection]

“Never settle in a race and never settle in life.”
