A Word from Annie Behrend

Ultrarunning has allowed me to explore thousands of miles of trail systems and wilderness areas that logistically would have been incredibly challenging to experience without the support of races and the running community. Gear reviewing could hardly be paired with a better hobby as we rack up the miles and find what keeps us moving comfortably, efficiently, safely, etc. My personal interests include trail and ultrarunning, camping, travel, fishing, hiking, raising worthless (but cute) barn animals, and navigating motherhood.
