I test trail shoes for Trail Runner magazine, after answering a Facebook post that asked us to describe in one sentence why we should be chosen to test shoes. My response: “I love to run trails and eat cookies in North Carolina; hoping to complete my first ultra this year!” either stood out for its utter lack of impressive race pedigree, or its proper use of a semicolon. Anyway, I usually receive new trail shoes every fall or spring and love putting them to the test! What a sweet gig!

I’ve also done a bit of free-lancing for them, either for their print or online editions:
