Samantha has a love for running and has competed in many different running events over the last 20+ years. She is currently training for her 1st 50k. Samantha believes the best part of running is the time spent chatting with people and seeing new places. She is an avid rock climber, teacher, and thoroughly enjoys exploring the Pacific North West with her family. This is her second year at Pickathon and she’s excited to guide the early risers at Pickathon on a friendly neighborhood run.
