I am a trail runner and mountain lover, currently residing in New Hampshire with my trail dog, Moose. I’ve been known to fill my hydration pack with cold brew coffee and eat a box of semi-frozen waffles on the run. My sense of direction and navigation skills are comical, and I’m guaranteed to fall at least once per run. When not on the trails, I’m a student at the University of New Hampshire. I study dietetics and kinesiology, hoping to specialize in nutrition for endurance athletes when I graduate (after hiking the PCT!) You can find me at @lizzieshell22 on Instagram! PC: Howie Stern

Eating Disorders and Finding Self-Care

Everyone remembers their freshman year of high school. There was excitement, nerves, and everything in between. My freshman year of high school was a fuzzy blur of doctor’s visits, social isolation, and battling the country’s deadliest mental illness. I can still remember the moment that my doctor told me, “You have anorexia.”
