Lisa Boomer is a professional travel/adventure photographer and when she’s not wandering the country capturing the beauty of it, she’s an avid Crossfit trainer and competitor. She began her Crossfit journey almost three years ago and is still in love with olympic weightlifting and the gymnastics skill work, as well as the tight-knit, supportive community. Lisa is also a hiker and trail runner, and is a firm believer that discipline is a choice, growth is born of failure and even the humble can hustle. In April 2017 she will enter her first Crossfit competition, as well as participating in the Crossfit Open in February/March. Her current program is an RP Strength cut in preparation for the Open (cutting body fat, maintaining muscle strength). She is also the proud dog mama to the world’s greatest pooches (totally biased of course).
A Pacific Northwest girl at heart, currently calling Southern California home, Hyla has a huge passion for holistic nutrition which helps fuel her inner athlete. After an overuse injury in early 2017, while training for her tenth marathon, Hyla sought out cross-training to create more balance and strength. She walked into a Crossfit gym on June 13, 2017, and was immediately hooked. While she still enjoys an occasional run, the new challenges she faces participating in Crossfit have given her a new appreciation for fitness and what her body is capable of. Hyla loves experimenting in the kitchen and is always on the hunt for ways to improve the quality of her diet to enhance performance and recovery. When she’s not training, working as a freelance writer or writing her novel, she enjoys crafting up healthy meals, spending time outdoors hiking, backpacking and camping, traveling, spending time with her family, reading, and napping.

Hi - I'm The Beerded Runner and I love to pray, run, drink beer and grow my beard out! I love to run and explore trails from all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond. I would like to share some dreams and aspirations. An aspiration is to reach the 100 mile Ultramarathon distance within 30 hours. I dream to inspire others to get out and be active in any way shape or form. A motto of mine is that every mile is a challenge and accomplishment, and should be rewarded with beer, no matter how long it takes you, because in fact the more you're out there the more power to you.
Hi everyone! My name is Ashley Peters and I am not an ultra amazing athlete, however I am a busy mom to 4, I'm married to an amazing man, I work in the medical field and I’m a health and fitness instructor. I love challenges, helping others reach their fitness goals and trying new things and I firmly believe that everyone has a second chance at a healthy life regardless of the situation. I love getting in a good sweat, rocking out to good music and a GOOD glass of wine.
