The count down begins - I am now less than 2 weeks away from the 2015 IAU World Trail Championships, where I will be representing the USA. This race is an 86km adventure around Lake Annecy in France, with about 17,000 feet of climbing on technical trails. I am excited and nervous! The hard work with training is done, and all I can do is taper!

Unfortunately, the USATF does not cover travel expenses, so everyone on the team is expected to cover their own flights. Trail Butter has partnered with the team to produce a special Team USA flavor, called Red White and Blue Trail Butter to benefit the team. The sale of this product will help offset our travel expenses.

Red White and Blue Trail Butter is a blend of 3 nuts - cashews, almonds and hazelnuts, and combines gogi berries (red), roasted coconut (white) and blueberries (blue). This is a limited edition product - it will only be available during the month of May. Please consider purchasing a jar to support the team (http://trailbutter.com/product/usa/), and post about the product on social media.
