Krissy Moehl grew up in Bow, Washington and participated in every sport and activity the days would allow. In her seven years of Ultrarunning, Krissy has built a resume of over 65 finishes with 33 female wins. In a sport that is geared towards an older crowd (average age at Hardrock 2007 was 47 years) starting in the sport at 21 Krissy was on the younger side. Now as the sport grows, more and more young runners are trying their legs at the longer distances.
“I’ve always loved running and enjoyed the training, but being on the trails, sharing time with like-minded individuals, exploring beautiful places and sharing in such a niche community I finally felt like I’d found a sense of home in running, a completeness.”
“Running has taken me all over the world, has helped define me as a person, has led me to employment opportunities and connected me with life-long friends. I have learned a lot from many years of running, and it seems the longer I’m out there the more life makes sense. I find a sense of peace, balance and self while running. I find strength and feel more in touch with self and surroundings. I like to say there aren’t many ‘issues’ that a long run can’t solve.”
