My name is Karen. I’m from Long Beach, California. The Army has me currently stationed in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. You are most likely to find me on the trails with Raya, my Rhodesian Ridgeback or crashing on my mountain bike. I created this site to keep a journal of my adventures and share my love for running. My very first ultramarathon was the North Carolina Fatass 50K in January 2018. I have completed over a dozen of ultras since, including five 100-mile races. My curiosity constantly seeks the next opportunity to push those boundaries. I am a member of the 2020-2021 RADrabbit Squad and USTAF Level 1 Coaching Certified.
