Hi, I’m Lauren and I’m here to share the lessons I’ve learned through the ongoing process of radically transforming my life, overcoming obesity, and improving my mental health.

Though trail running plays a central role in all of that, this blog isn’t only about running or for runners. I hope my stories resonate with anyone seeking inspiration on how to tackle major goals one step at a time.

I’m a full-time freelance writer and mediocre ultramarathon runner currently living in the Northeast United States with my husband and four big dogs. My passions include de-stigmatizing mental illness, advocating for psychedelic medicine, traveling to far-off places, and drinking too much espresso.

Me, Jason, and 3/4 of our fur family

One of the things I love most about the trail and ultrarunning community is how easy it is to talk about life’s challenges when you’re out running through the trees together. I hope this blog gives you a little slice of that goodness.
