Amanda Lee -Runner, Crazy Cat Lady

Amanda is an accidental (but proud) “crazy cat lady” and Social Work graduate student. She stubbornly pursued track and road racing after college, despite feeling happier on trails. After losing her mother to breast cancer in 2014, Amanda decided to choose her happiness and focus on trails. Training in Boulder, CO under Pikes Peak Ascent legend Scott Elliot and racing for Flatirons Running New Balance, she is eager to build on strong 2015 races at the US Mountain Running Championship (11th), US Trail Half Championship (12th), and US Trail Marathon Championship (5th).

I’ve got quite a few adventures planned for this year, because I race a lot, but here are the bigger ones:

  • July 3 – US Mountain Running Championship
  • July 30 – US Trail 30km Championship
  • August 20 – Pikes Peak Ascent
  • September 18 – XTERRA Trail Run National Championship
  • October 17 – US Trail Half Marathon Championship at Lake Padden
  • November 5 – US Trail Marathon Championship
