I wanted to be a runner for years (before I started calling myself one), but was never sure how to go about becoming a one.
Amelia lives in a tiny yellow house in Missoula, Montana with her husband Jamie and their dog Piper. Together they own a business called Cairn Cartographics making trail maps for Wilderness areas in Western Montana. Amelia spends her summers running trails to GPS them and driving around in the mountains to research places for their next map. In the cooler months Jamie helps her turn the data she collects into beautiful, super-accurate maps and she runs the trails around Missoula where the closest trailhead is an eight minute run from her back door.
