  2. Seeing all of your summit pictures is so awesome! I’ve started doing little peaks in my area like Simi peak working my way up to some of the bigger 8 or 9 thousand foot peaks. Running is the best and thank you for the inspiration!

  3. I read that you grew up in Nebraska. I was curious what part of NE or what town you grew up in? I spent the first 20 years of my life in Lexington, NE. Happy trails!
