Laurel Devore

I started running with my mom when I was 15 and have been running ever since! In 2015, I ran my first ultra and was hooked-- I fell in love with the community and the trail. For the past 5 years, I've balanced my full-time job with a competitive trail and ultrarunning career. It is an amazing adventure of highs and lows, but I enjoy riding the rollercoaster of success and defeat because in the end it makes you stronger and smarter. I always remind myself that you either win or you learn something and that is the beauty of pushing yourself to the limit.
