Going for the FKT
This is a "girl-crush" episode! When you can't be somebody, you want to be like somebody and I want to be like Mallory Brooks.
Mallory and her husband, Jason, are the owners of Spectrum Trail Racing, she's a Rogue Running Trail Coach, she's the Race Director of the Rogue Trail Series, and, oh yeah, she's also the Mom to her son, Paxton.
She's also a BEAST on the trail and, in fact, last year, she and her friend Allison Macsus earned the FKT (Fastest Known Time) on the 93-Mile Wonderland Trail that circumvents Mt. Rainier. She also recently completed a sub-12:00hr Rim-2-Rim-2-Rim Crossing in the Grand Canyon.
In this episode, she details both her Rim-2-Rim-2-Rim and Wonderland adventures. Learn what drives her, how she developed her love of trail running and why she loves coaching beginners in the sport. It's truly a sport for everyone because, let's face it, who doesn't love playing in the woods?
