#wcw My favorite female runner, Jenn Shelton
My crush on Jenn was born from a book that would literally alter my life, 'Born To Run' As the only female runner invited to the exclusive and incredibly demanding Copper Canyon Ultra (the main point of the book), her persona (such as staying up all night drinking tequila before running hundreds of miles at a time and her earnest descriptions of how running changed her life) quickly made me admire, respect and love her.
She has won numerous prestigious Ultras, holds some impressive FKT'S (Fastest Known Times), holds marathon course records (like the one below that she ran in, yes, a bikini) and has qualified for the Olympic Trials. She lives in a van she has named 'Hi-C' and tours the mountain west as a Patagonia-sponsored athlete running trails and spreading her love of Ultra and marathon running.
It's quite easy to see, from my eyes, why I'm quite smitten on Ms. Shelton :) #wcw #women #crush #strongwomen #admiration #running #ultramarathon #borntorun @sheltonjenn #runningcrush #athlete #loveher #trailrunning #ultracaballoblanco #myfavoriterunner
