Stacy lives happily with her family and fur babies near the mountains, where she enjoys all the amazing outdoor recreation Ogden, UT has to offer like mountain biking, running marathons, triathlons, relay races, and ultra-marathons. She is currently training for her tenth full marathon and first 50-miler, so if you see her running around town, give her a honk and a shout of encouragement. She loves to travel and looks forward to many great adventures all over the world.
