Alyson is a runner who has completed 7 marathons. She runs exclusively outside and prides herself on running in any weather. (Lightning is the only thing that keeps her home.)
She enjoys running roads and trails. She's partial to roads because she can step right out her front door and go - no travel time required. She's training for her first ultra though - an idea born in a late winter funk when large road marathons were still looking questionable due to covid.
She works as a school nurse and is the mother of 2 teenagers. She considers running a basic need like food and water. She gets irritable if she goes more than a couple days without running. She's a consistent runner for everyone's safety.
