I’m so excited today to introduce you to Trena Roudebush. I’ve known Trena for a couple years now, and I’ve seen her grow and evolve as a runner.
This incredible woman has run 65 half marathons, 15 marathons, and now three ultra marathons, and she’s not stopping anytime soon.
Today we’re talking about what it was like to run Boston, why she loves the social aspect of running, and the transition from road racing to trail racing.
