Molly Peterson

Molly is a middle-distance trail runner (and aspiring marathoner!) living on the east coast with her boyfriend Ryan and their cuddly cat Cedar. She found her passion in trail running in her early 20’s when she and her boyfriend began exploring local trails together and started a trail running club in their community. In addition to running, Molly can be found pursuing a lot of other activities like mountain biking, music, writing and gardening. She spends a ton of time reading about nutrition and other health topics, and is always trying to implement this knowledge in her day-to-day life to improve her running and overall well-being and happiness. She writes about her running and health adventures on a newly founded blog: lifeislikeatrail.wordpress.com
