Imagine this: you’re running outside, it’s vast and expansive, you’re surrounded by meadows, forests, lakes, mountains, and the coastline. This is just a teeny tiny fraction of the beauty Alaska has to offer, and there’s so much more ground to cover.
This week, I have Kim Ryals on the show. Kim is the owner and founder of Run Alaska Trails, and she’s here to talk to us about all things Alaskan running. She’s a late-onset runner and can totally relate to us Not Your Average Runners. She’s making the case for why running in Alaska should be on your bucket list, and I can guarantee you’ll be convinced by the end of the episode.
Join us on this episode as Kim entices us with the running scene in Alaska. If you’re anything like me, I know you’re going to want all the details on what to do there and what to expect, and Kim is giving us the lowdown on it all. And best of all, you’ll find out how you can make this bucket list dream a reality in 2022.
