I'm Shawna, an outgoing, adventure-and-outdoors lover from Upstate NY! I am an avid runner and fitness enthusiast – while running is my passion, I also love to bike, paddleboard, hike, lift weights, do yoga, snowboard, and generally move my body (preferably outdoors) as much as possible. Running is a serious love for me: I've run 2 full marathons, 15+ half marathons, countless other races, and truly do it for the love of the everyday run. I consider running my therapy and literally crave a run. I come from a legacy of running: my grandfather, Frank Hussey, was considered the fastest young sprinter in the US at one point (called “The Boy Wonder”), and he won a gold medal in the 1924 Paris Summer Olympics. This sparked my father to assume a passion for running, which I happily picked up upon as well. I'm passionate about living a healthy, balanced, adventure and exploration filled life with my amazing hubby (who is one of the top mountain bikers in NYS) and our adorable pup.
