Featured Runner: Stacy Trosine

Our featured runner this month is inspiring to so many people, even outside of the relay community. Stacy Trosine is part of team 21 Dyxlesic Runenrs at Spokane to Sandpoint. Her friend, Stacy Thompson, nominated her.

As not to confuse you with two Stacy’s, I’ll talk about Stacy Trosine unless otherwise noted.

Stacy is currently in the US Air Force. She has been deployed 7 times to places like Afghanistan and Iraq. She began taking running more seriously when she met a fellow Air Force marathoner in Afghanistan. His ideas rubbed off on her and she ended up losing a lot of […]

CLR Love | How two teammates became a family

Gretchen explains how both her and Matt almost didn’t join the team. “I did try to get out of the race last minute because of a nagging injury, and Matt got talked back onto the team at the […]

Easing Back Into Running: BAMR Twisted Sister Audrey’s Story

This month, I wanted to introduce you to Audrey…newly appointed BAMR, and member of Twisted Sisters.   All of the ladies on our Twisted Sisters team have done relays before.  Only one of us has been lucky enough to participate in CLR (Nicole).    While most of us are fresh off our relay experiences, Audrey had to reach back to 1998 for her last relay memories.  Here’s a little bit about Audrey and the Why and How she is taking on CLR after such a long running hiatus.
Rewind the time clock to 2012, Audrey was turning 40.  She wanted to usher in […]

3 relays, 5 states, 594.8 miles.

It was only a few years ago that Jeremy Howell would not have considered himself a runner.
