About Me

My name is Karen. I’m from Long Beach, California. I am stationed in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. You can catch me on the trails with Raya, my Rhodesian Ridgeback or riding my mountain bike with friends. I created this site to keep a journal of my adventures and share my love for running. I started running in the fall of 2017 and my very first ultramarathon in January 2018 (North Carolina Fatass 50K).  Since then, I have completed over a dozen of ultras, including seven 100-mile races. Ask me to go on a run with you !
