So naturally it was a surprise to many when she laid low from the competitive circuit last year while she was fighting an energy, iron, and GI issue that threatened to derail her career, livelihood, and main source of joy.

Just getting ready and training for the zombie apocalypse. All you have to do is not give up. This is me finishing and winning the @montreuxtrailfestival 35k. 2 weeks prior I had just raced @eigerultratrail 100k which is a burly mountain course. Which seems to be theme in Europe because @montreuxtrailfestival was no different even for a short race. I was in 4th place most of the day till the final descent The last downhill was around 4000 ft and I just said screw it let’s see what I got. Well I found out. With 5k to go I fell and split my eyebrow open. Best scar of my life and good reminder you are always stronger than you think. Only 27 days left of #quarantine #ihope #letsgetthroughthis #coronavirus #happyweekend #zerolimits #altrarunning #springenergy #natureup #bestracephotoever #finishphoto #savage #bleedforspeed PC @outdoorandnews
